I am really excited to introduce my strip pieced quilted purse and wallet class at Hancock Fabrics. Using the walking foot I sewed 2 1/2″ to 3″ strips to a pre quilted fabric to make the project fast and easy to make. You can make the bag and wallet together in one session on Wednesday November 20th from 9:30 till 4:30pm The strips can be shared for both projects. You will need 8 – 1/4 yard pieces of fabric to cut the strips for your purse and wallet ( one strip each project) . The wallet only takes a 1/4 yard piece of pre quilted background fabric and 5/8 yard of binding fabric plus 2 zippers and one snap.
I have written the instructions for the wallet but have not yet had time to assemble the purse. You are looking at the top flap. I used my Singer Futura to monogram the flap for a personalize look and I used some of my decorative stitches to embellish the strips. When I get the whole purse finished I will picture it here along with instructions.
I think I will make wallets to give as Christmas gifts this year. They are pretty quick and once I have everything assembled I will be able to complete them quickly. When you look inside the wallet you will find 2 zipper compartments. One area is for folding money and the other is for the change. The wallet also has 2 folded pockets. Both are for credit cards and are very comvient
Make sure you check out the wallet pattern. It is free! Just like a good cook, I do not tell you all my secrets. You will have to take the class for that. Call 410- 677 3461 to enroll.
