Little Charmer Wallet

People look at me funny when I say I don't sew, but really it's true!  I just used my zipper foot for the very first time!

The tutorial for this wallet can be found here by Clover and Violet.  Jennie was doing a tutorial for the 2012 Finish-a-Long.  Clover and Violet have a whole ton of similar free patterns here.

Since I've never tried to use a pattern like this before, I make some mistakes, but I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.  The little pocket on the bottom and the hair elastic / button combo veer from the pattern instructions.

The fabric is entirely a set of charm squares from Connecting Threads - the line is called Faux Burlap.


  1. The fabric is really cool. It looks great,especially the Zipper!

    1. Thanks, Jane! That zipper was one I saved from one of those plastic bag containers you get sheets in. I saved it years ago, remembered I saved it and then FOUND IT in reasonable time.
