Selvage Fun

Several months ago when I discovered 'The Selvage Blog' I have had a selvage wallet in mind. Here is what I came up with.
I have almost finished the binding on several of these adorable wallets. Tons of fun to make!
I moved the cc to where a checkbook will go so pic would show the checkbook or notepad pocket. They don't have a closure yet but not sure yet that one is necessary.
My design skills are limited; I searched out a free pattern on the web, made it, took it apart and then redesigned to be a complete clutch wallet, where the original only had cc pockets and a zipper pocket opposite, no fold. Here is where I found the original free pattern called a 'Cash-Keeper'.... StudioKat  If you love purses you will love this site!

  1. So cute...and so useful! I love selvages and have been keeping them (those with cute writing and names) for years, but never do anything with them. Thanks for the great idea!

  2. Hi Wanda,
    What a nice job you did on this selvage wallet. I like everything about it. May I feature it on the Selvage Blog?

  3. I love your wallet and also Kathy's site. I'd recommend you send her a picture of your wallet as I'm sure she'd love to post it on her website.

  4. I love this!!! You did a awesome job!
