I needed to replace my vinyl, 6-year old wallet. I decided to use this pattern (Diva Frame Clutch). In addition to the pattern, I had to buy the metal clasp frame, which cost about $10 as well.
I was dubious. I like a highly functioning wallet. I carry a lot of things in my wallet besides just money, and I despise fumbling around for them or having them dumped all together.
I pondered the color choices for a long time because I wanted to feel happy carrying this wallet no matter what style mood I was in (I'm sure I'm not the only one who veers from simple to boho to lacy to outdoorsy). After doing this solid-color patchwork, I feel like I want to get rid of all the prints in my stash and just collect solid colors. I love the color play that much.
I am proud to say that this wallet came entirely from my scrap stash. I did not buy fabric for it, nor did I cut into dress-lengths of fabric.
The pattern was a little unclear at points, but I made notes on it for next time because I'm pretty sure there will be a next time. My sister wants one. And yes, after about 2 weeks of use, I love mine. I get a happy little jolt every time I pull it out of my bag.
