a lovely match

I am so excited...I have finished my Have It All wallet from Straight Stitch Society!  Here it is:

I had a blast making it, and the pattern instructions were so easy to follow!  Here is a peek of the inside:

I had to think about the zipper pocket a moment or two...but once I realized what it was went together no problem!  I made only one change to the directions, and instead of using a piece of heavy sew-in interfacing, I used Pellon 809 throughout (had lots leftover from constructing my bag), and I think it worked well, plus I wouldn't have wanted to try stitching through all of that!

So now I'm all set with a lovely new bag and matching wallet:

And now...what to work on for the rest of the evening....


  1. Lesley, your bag and wallet are gorgeous!!! I love the fabrics and you did a beautiful job!!
