I bought the bottom wallet at a little shop in Bellingham when I went to visit my brother the weekend before last. I really like it, but it doesn’t quite have enough space for all the cards and coupons and other little notes I carry around for various discounts and savings clubs. Those little pieces of paper and plastic add up to fill an entire other pouch. So, I made a second wallet (is that kind of like second breakfast?) to hold them all. It was fairly simple to sew up. I used leather and lined it with with upholstery fabric. I’m always amazed that my little sewing machine sews through the tough surfaces, but it does. I added a vintage glass button as an embellishment; it really closes with velcro.
I haven’t uploaded the San Francisco trip pics yet, but we had a great time. I’ll regale you with stories and visuals soon!
