Wallet finished – more a clutch bag/ wallet

Boy did this project get me agitated. I haven’t had that with sewing for years. I’ve designed complicated bags with breasts etc- but a simple wallet is not so simple! Will I make one again? Probably not, but I gave it a go which is what I wanted to do. I’ll stick to basic handbags. I still have enough leather and lining fabric to make a simple stylish bag.

First go, looks great but is too bulky to sew up well


Cut up part of first wallet and will be a coin purse. Will glue this red leather down to hide seams etc.
