I made this wallet years ago... back when I first started sewing seriously. I was so flattered that Leanne had been using it all this time and loved it enough to wear it out. I instantly wanted to make her a new wallet. I don't make wallets in that style anymore, I have learned to love clutch wallets instead.
I had been wanting to try adding a more functional zipper pocket and this gave me a good opportunity to try it out. I ended up making two. I wanted one, so I made twins.
The zipper colours are the only real difference.
Leanne is a Canadian, living abroad, so I snuck in some flags. A little reminder of home.
The good news is that she likes it and I do, too.
