Sewing Little Wallet

I purchased a pattern for how to make little wallets when I was in Maui last year. The store had a cute tiny wallet right by the cash register, and I just knew I had to get the pattern for it. I decided to use my Tokidoki sushi fabric that I blogged about for these little wallets. I am making this for someone who may be reading my blog so I won't ruin the surprise :)

These wallets are perfect to store gift cards, business cards, or other random things she may have. 

I actually wasn't quite sure how to sew on the snaps, but thank goodness for YouTube! I used this tutorial; check out how she does these little knots. Isn't this red sushi fabric so cute!? I love sushi!

The finished size measures approximately 3.5" x 4.5"

I stopped by Pier One Imports today. Do you have one near you? I can spend hours there! I bought a few cute decor items for our house, but check out this bamboo lamb I bought!

Ha! Look at this cutie!

This lamb is sitting on the fire mantel next to my drawings; I am so excited to have this little addition in my sewing corner. I need to place some white yarn ball next to it, that would be cute, huh!? 

Hope you are enjoying your weekend wherever you are.

That is the cutest fabric. I wish I had a little wallet as cute as that one.
