Luckily I had two of the blue prints in my stash to augment the supplies because this block uses pretty big pieces of each print. That's why I had to split the red/blue bits in the block; I just didn't have enough of one print for both halves of that shape.
D was off to a birthday party Saturday afternoon, so I whipped up these wallets (one for her birthday girl friend and a second one for my friend!) using a coveted piece of Echino linen. We've used this Valori Wells "Little Wallet" as a present many times (we hide a gift card inside). I chose the linen and D chose the interior prints to coordinate.
Although the linen makes it a challenge to turn and then poke out the corners, it does give the wallet some extra oomph and just feels so nice in your hands. Typically when I make something small like this (including my thread catchers) I make two at a time...it doesn't seem to take any longer and it's nice to have an extra on hand for gift-giving emergencies!
I hope to do a couple more posts before signing off for a week of Spring Break. The kids are I are heading to Orlando, Florida for some Harry Potter action (at Universal) and a trip to the space centre....but more importantly a much-anticipated visit there with my far away sister and her family. Yippee!
Have you got any fun plans for Spring Break? This is our first ever March vacation. Sadly B has to stay home and work, but I couldn't pass up the chance to rendezvous with sister and this year our school district has a full two week break - we had to do something!!
