a needle wallet

Every now and then, I make something and really impress myself. That is what happened when I made this awesome wallet.

This is the pattern, it comes with a video tutorial and it is a must buy, honestly YOU MUST GET THIS.
Well, for a starters, it will provide a handy storage for singular sewing needles and provide a spot for those silly little packets of needles.  You can use the grid provided & print it onto fabric. There are two different types of grids, one for sewing machine needles and the other for hand-stitching needles.   Instead of using the grid provided (which would have been really simple to do), I decided to use the fancy lettering stitches on my sewing machine.  I've had my sewing machine for over 20 years and have only used the lettering when I first got it!

The little vinyl pockets are really easy to add, really easy!  I was worried about using vinyl but nope, this pattern (& video) make it so easy!
Then there is the super handy zipper pockets on the outside and let me tell you, installing the zip (according to the pattern/video) will blow your mind. Yes. I've never installed a zipper like that and wowser, it's brilliant! ...I'll never go back to my old way of installing a zipper ever again!

You could also add the strap (that is part of the pattern) but I knew I wouldn't be using that, so I missed that step and I really like the effect of the elastic closure.

So, stop what you are doing and go & grab the pattern and make your sewing space tidier!

...not to forget how stunning that fabric is with those gorgeous butterflies (or are they moths?) are!
