Kay-dee bug wallet

Week 5 SYTYC Theme: Up-cycle

 I have to tell you, this theme for some reason, had me running around in circles all week. I seriously started and abandoned 2 different projects and thought of a handful more. By Wednesday I was in a panic, so I meandered around my craft room hoping for some inspiration. I dug around my "to re-purpose"  box and found an old houndstooth skirt that was dying to become a pretty hand bag.....but I made wallets instead.

I've been meaning to draft a wallet pattern for a long time. It turns out this was just the push I needed. Each wallet has card pockets, a spot for cash, and a handy dandy zippered pouch! I sort of love them, and may turn some of the Husband's jeans into wallets as well....shhh! Don't tell.


  1. So cute and a great use from an old skirt! Serious props from a fellow sewer!!! I like how you played with colors against the black and white too. Oh, and I have to give you a high five on those red shoes...did you get them at Target? I have a pair too ;-)

    I'm co-hosting a linky party and I'd love for you to link up your project:

    Take care,

  2. That is so adorable!! What a great idea...also...IN LOVE with your shoes :D

  3. Super cute! What a great way to upcycle the skirt. I love the bright buttons.


I don't think I've ever told you this, but I like your comments best of all......shhh don't tell.
