What a wallet!

I finished this little fabric paper wallet off today ready for its long journey tomorrow! Here are the stages before I added the ribbon fastening and the decorative, fun beads, which I know its new owner will enjoy. It’s also my entry for This Thursday, it’s all about…. “ribbons” (Bowdacious ones???).

Lined with a piece of yellow felt (machine-stitched directly to the fabric paper without glue). I used Gutermann green shiny (lurex-style) thread, working with the colours in the paper, which are fairly bold!

Before adding beads and the ribbon closure…

The finished article! I am rubbish at tying bows, as you can see and the next one will probably have a button or a fat bead and a loop instead! Never mind, it’s still cute for some tissue paper and glue, isn’t it?!! And I have Sandiee (Auntys Forum) to thank for the piece of ribbon, which I believe she sent me inside my birthday card… awwww!! See, I am such a hoarder!
