I have a big boy, with some special needs, who loses things.
He tries to keep it all together....
Rather than go out and BUY another wallet....
I made a little coin purse instead.
Didn't cost me a cent!
It was so easy...
I know I can do it again when this one is
Hopefully he'll keep it zipped up tight!
so that his precious treasure doesn't escape!!!
It was pretty easy to put together...
so I thought I'd share how I did it.
Then...... I want to
give one AWAY!!
one 8 1/2"x6" piece of denim
one 8 1/2"x6" piece of lining fabric
one 3"x4" piece of plastic vinyl
One nylon zipper at least 8" long.
Sew the vinyl onto one side of bag.
Use your walking foot!!!!
I tried sewing it on WITHOUT and found out the hard way.
It didn't work.
Sew the zipper on.
Zipper face down.
Bag face up.
Fold the bag in half and do the same thing.
I doodled a little flower on with my
feed dogs down and my darning foot on.
I probably should have done it
BEFORE the zipper was on....but I didn't.
I thought the flower looked lonely...
so I added a little strip of fabric below.
Lay lining face down onto your bag.....
right sides are together.
sew along the top of each side.
Now.....fold the bag in half and leave zipper pull
IN THE MIDDLE of the top of the bag.
The zipper is half way open
half way closed.
Here's the little handle I wanted to add to the side!
Good thing I remembered it now.
Tuck that little handle in the side of the bag
SEW down each side.
Leave an opening here!
Trim the excess zipper.
Turn right sides out.
and sew along that opening.
I just did a simple top stitch.
I've got a membership card......
But no money.
I'd like to give this little bag away to one of YOU!
(without the membership card...of course)
If you'd like to win.
Leave a little note.
I'll pull a name out of the hat on Friday!!!!
Just a little something for being
my good neighbors here in blogland!
