Hello! Happy Monday!
Is today a glorious day for a giveaway? I think so. I have stuff that is in acute need of a new home. Curious? Well… along with Sherrill Kahn‘s book “Stitched Collage” (which I reviewed for you in my Friday post), the lucky winner will also win this little me-made wallet inspired by some of the stitching ideas presented in Ms. Kahn’s book.
Yes, unfortunately there is only one prize… But, chin up! Even if you don’t win, you can still make yourself a tiny wallet like this one. Why, sure. The very simple, well-written 19th Street wallet tutorial is brought to you graciously by Insatiable Need. I used the tutorial as written but made the wallet one-of-a-kind-unique by embellishing the top piece my way.
I started by freezer-paper stenciling my swirl design onto the top piece as below. If you’ve never tried that, check out this freezer-paper stenciling tutorial. Or google it. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s everywhere. Note that the full-size space wallet swirl design is available for you right here as a PDF.
And then I went “at it” with some french knots and running stitches.
I sewed the whole thing together as per the 19th Street wallet instructions and a new little cardholder wallet was born. Here’s the inside. I used only scraps to make this nebulous little guy: the perfect stash-busting project seeing as it’s small and easy and quick.
I typed my name and the date on the inner piece so the winner will not forget who made it for her. Peek-a-boo, I made you!
And here’s what the finished wallet looks like! Spacey, no?
So the prize package consists of: Sherrill Kahn’s “Stitched Collage” and my little space wallet!
Oh, and in case you were curious, my extra-terrestrial name would be Meelchi from the planet Dameem. By the way.
Live long, prosper, and best of luck to you!
