Sew much?

Almost a year ago now I made a wallet (link) using lovely Leslie's Maze & Vale (link) fabric.

I'm still holding onto some fabric of her's just waiting for the right project.
Last weekend I noticed my makeup/drugs bag I carry everywhere was looking a little scruffy so I decided it was time to make a new one! I used her Quill design (on grey cotton) with a bright coral cotton from Spotlight. I'm so pleased with how this turned out!

Also last week she she put up on her Etsy (link) some sample packs of new colours and patterns. I couldn't resist! When they arrived Wednesday I knew I had to make something else.

Whilst I love my red wallet I made from her confetti design. I felt like a change so I made myself a tiny wallet. Just big enough for cards and a little cash. For those nights when you want to carry as little as possible.

My process for making this was to cut up little pieces of paper first until I was happy with the size.

I normally wouldn't do this but because these sample pieces were all different sizes I wanted to make sure I had enough of the beautiful Litterfall (in Overcast on white) before I started cutting!

And this is what it turned out like!

I'm really happy with this it's the perfect size for nights out and that pattern is oh so adorable!
So go and check out Maze & Vale and Leslie! Because she makes so many lovely things and I just want them all!!
