Money, money, money.....

everyone loves it and we all need it !
When our cousin Iris, celebrated her 60th birthday I knew right away what we were going to give her for her birthday ...no, not money!! (I'm not a big believer on giving money for gifts, usually it gets spent on bills) I want the person to have something from me.

So instead of money... I gave her something to hold it in ...I made my first Necessary Clutch Wallet by Emmaline   ....can you say, loooove it!!!
Of course I had to make a few changes to the pattern...in Germany we don't use as many credit cards so I omitted one side of credit card slot pockets and added a snap pocket instead ( for bills or receipts)
This wallet really can act as a clutch...it holds everything you need...money, credit cards and your cell phone fits in there without a problem.
I really enjoy sewing this wallet..I definitely will be making more !

Since I knew Iris would get lots of money from others for her birthday.....I had to give her a bigger bag to carry in all in ...the Aragon Bag.
...every time I saw her, she told me how much she loved this bag, so I knew I would give it to her for her birthday.
Now she has a set for her trip to Russia! 
Bon voyage Iris !! 
Stay away from the Vodka !!

Stair Basket Sew Along...Day 5

.....while everyone else is putting their basket together ( out of plastic canvas)...I can take the day off since I have already built my basket.....
On the weekend I did manage to catch up a bit...

I would NOT recommend lining the upper edge of the pockets with pleater ( like I did) ...what a pain in the butt! ....actually sewing was easy...gathering up the elastic tunnel was the pain....pleather was to thick.
Everything else went together without a hitch...except the one corner ( inner one gave me fits.) After ripping it numerous times ( a lot) I finally figured out that its was easier to sew it if you clipped the seam allowance almost to the point...thus allowing you to get an almost straight line...that was way easier to sew then a crazy L shape.

The lining went together really quickly ( compared to the outer shell)...I even added a pleather trim to the top of the outer shell...we'll see if this was a good idea.
Now I have to figure out how to put the two together...in the instructions it is basted to the plastic canvas frame...my frame is out of wood and I don't have hand sewing needles that go through 3mm wood....time for the thinking cap...that or a lot of hand sewing!!
