A Weekend Project

Another weekend gone and another project completed.

On Friday night when I got home, I originally started cutting out bits and pieces for another project but just as I was about to start sewing everything together, I realised that I haven't got enough material to complete the project so I had to postpone it and I then started making something else when I woke up on Saturday morning. Somebody did warn me that this sewing thing is very addictive and yessss, I completed yet another project while listening to the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows audiobook on my ipod dock, over the weekend. Mind you, I didn't exactly spend my whole weekend glued to the machine. I have decided that waking up early on Saturdays and Sundays is the best way to squeeze some sewing time in before you have to do other weekend chores. And I love it. 

So what exactly did I make this time? I'll show you with a series of pictures.
I had a very happy model holding it up for me. So what is it? Let's look at it closely.
It's a quilted wallet. I found the pattern here but didn't follow it strictly coz I modified it slightly to include a coin pouch.
It's got 6 credit card slots and a zippered coin pouch and I especially love this label I attached with it as well.
In the past I've always completed a project at night and the pictures were always taken at night so doesn't really look natural. This morning, I managed to take another picture of it and this one shows the real colours of the wallet.
Again, this is not a perfect project and I'm still learning lots from sewing it but overall I am quite satisfied with it and so is my Dear Sweet Colleague, who is now the proud owner of this quilted wallet, although she insisted that it is more like a jewellery pouch than a wallet :P . Ever since I started sewing, I've always wanted to make something special for her and today, I did. 

On another note, Monday is always a happy day in the office because there are quite often exchanges of gifts. I found this on my table when I got into work this morning.
A rock candy from Devon, a cute little froggy card wishing me a 'Hoppy Monday' and a lovely ,lovely gift tag the shape of a bird with a really cute button on it. I love Mondays !!

Okay, let's hope that there will be more post waiting for me when I get home so that I can resume the project I started on Friday.

These came for me last Friday and how cute are they?!
Alright folks, till the next post, take care now.
