A Friend's Wallet

Funny how time pressures build and deadlines are met, but no pictures are taken.  This has happened so many times in the past year or so, a table runner, a free motion piece for a hutch, a artist piano bench slipcover, but NO SO for the wallet.

Yesterday I quickly pulled the camera out to record this personal victory! Could the wallet have been better...of course.  Would I do some things different on the free motion design and stitching -- you betcha!  But "done is good" and I'm very pleased with the result.  I took some ideas from Sew Mama Sew who features an Arizona Wallet by Teresa at Dandelion Drift (  Thank you Sew Mama Sew and Teresa! 

Planning another wallet but am loving this first attempt!

Here is the front with the friend's initials
The back is a variety of free motion stitching
