A change of ideas






Yesterday was not one of my best days. I was feeling really down and I wanted to cry all the time. To change ideas, I worked on the sewing project that I talked about a week ago. I haven't done much but it sure took a lot of time. I guess since I want to be proud of it when I take it out of my bag, every single detail has to be absolutely perfect. These were a few pictures of the work I've done till now.
It will be a dark brown leather wallet folded in three. There will be two sections for card placement, an inner pocket for change so as two sections for paper money and bills. It will be closed by a beaded magnetic snap. I'm using recycled materials (leather) and things I already had at home (beads, threads).  However, I will have to buy magnetic snaps and a zipper but still, I'm still contributing to the environment's preservation!

  1. I love how you people are so crafty and can sew things :) I remember once sewing patches of denim to a boring bag. Now, I'm much better at knitting :)
