Finally sewing




This, too, wasn't what I planned to post today. I really meant to do a post entitled "green" - after all I spent a good 15 minutes traipsing around the wet garden taking pictures.
Instead of editing oodles of pictures of vegetation, though, I sewed - finally. Not only sewed, but finished a whole project.

Last night, I downloaded and printed a tutorial - aspoonfullofsugargirls - A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR - for a loyalty wallet. This morning, the first blog post I read was this: Bloom: March of the loyalty cards.

I think that was a sign, don't you? So, I went through my pile of scraps, cut, fused, sewed and this is what I came up with. I'm quite pleased with it and since it's such a quick and fun project, there'll be more, no doubt.

Love your wallet Doris!! The heart shaped button finishes it off perfectly!

Oh, that's cool! I don't keep that many loyalty cards and mine fit in my regular wallet.

That is so cute! and practical, too. Great way for you to get back to sewing.

"Fused" -- are you fusing initial seams, or fusing rather than doing seams?
I have been struggling with fuse material -- it bunches and is somewhat difficult (for me) to work with!
That wallet is so nice!
The heart makes it !
