Wonderful Things Blog Tour

Hi Friends!  I am so excited about sharing this project with you!  When I was asked by Bonnie to join the blog tour for her new fabric line, Wonderful Things, I had to make a choice: make a new something or share one of the projects I had already made with this line… I decided to make something new (of course.  New fabric wins every time.)

I have had the idea for this wallet/clutch/wristlet in mind for a while.  I basically just need an oversized wallet that will hold my cards, phone, sunglasses and a few necessities.  So this is what I came up with!

The inside pocket has four more card pockets on the other side, and everything is held in place by an invisible sew in magnet, so that nothing goes flying or slips out when it’s opened up.  It also features a pocket that runs the full length of the bag, so it has plenty of room for everything I need, and probably a few things I don’t (like a receipt for every. single. thing. I’ve purchased in the last 9 months).

I love these prints so much!  I decided to piece the outside of the wristlet and embellish it with some hand stitches.  This isn’t a something I usually do, but it was so much fun, and I can see becoming addicted.  Look out, everything in my home, you’re about to get stitched on…

I wrote up the pattern and it’s available in my etsy shop!  Go take a look.  And if you want to see some of the other things I’ve made with this line, specifically the knits, check out my Instagram feed.
