Up, Up & Away....

I am sorry I have been gone for a while..... hope you all had a good start in the New Year.
....Mine has been busy ...I finally finished writing my first pattern!

A customer had asked for a wallet of sorts, to put her passports,& tickets in while traveling..she wanted it to hold at least 4 passports, size, color design was up to me... she wanted something nicer than the zip lock bag she carried them in!!

I started designing what I would like...
This is what I came up with !
She loved it so much that she ordered 4 more to give as Christmas gifts.
The inside has 6 slots of passports & boarding cards & a cool pockets for tags or credit cards.

You know I love sewing with faux, I started thinking that this would be a great little project to get others (you) to try also sewing with faux leather...a pattern was born! 

This is a fast & easy project, perfect for a confident beginners or someone that wants to try sewing faux leather, without taking on a big project.
The instructions are for using faux leather for the exterior ( with some tips & tricks) but cotton can also be used.
The wallet is made with a velcro closure but a snap, magnet or thumb lock can also be substituted.

So, I am very proud to announce...
Up, Up & Away, Family Passport Wallet 
is available for sale at Craftsy
It will be on sale for $3.95 till Monday..then $5.95 
Grab your copy *HERE* 
 and book your next vacation!!

Here are a few examples of the wallets my testers made.....they made them out of everything from cotton, suede, cork, Kraft Tex & faux leather !
Are these not awesome!!
( my testers told me that they were so much fun to sew that they had to make more than one!
...I think these would be great to sell at craft fairs!)

Hope you like it ??
Happy Sewing !!
Don't forget to join my Facebook group to keep up with my MOMENTS !
