Zippy Wallet Remix

2.27.2010


This is actually the first zippy wallet I've made in months!  I saw this photo and just loved the look of linen.  It was a perfect match for the gift I was making.  I didn't realize how fun these are to make, I wish I could make a hundred! 


In case anyone out there is curious, just thought I'd share my zipper source.  I should keep it top secret, haha, so I can keep all her zippers to myself, but...

Anyway, I buy all my zippers through Zipit on Etsy.  It's really awesome for me because she lives relativley close by.  Jennie is the shop owner and she is AWESOME at customer service, plus the sizes and color selections are great.

  3. Anna, love the colors you used for this one. The outside pocket with the flap is great. I'm almost to the point where I can start some real sewing stuff again. This will be on my list!

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Cute, cute, cute! That is fabulous! Great idea when you only have a tiny bit of cute fabric left. I love that plaid by the way.
