First up was a 'real' wallet for a boy turning 4! He requested one 'Just like Dad's, except with a zipper' So I modified the tutorial over at Modestmaven to include a box zipper.
(Inside has card pockets and the zipper pocket)
(Closes with a snap! out of focus, but the only picture I took...oops!)
(Pocket for the cash!)
(I didn't screw the zipper up and it was a LOT easier than I feared it would be!)
(Got to use my decorative stitches on the handle, very fun!)
(Inside with zippered pocket)
After making those for him, I had to make something equally cute for his little sister who was turning 2. She needed her own crayon roll, and a bag to carry it in! It couldn't just be a boring bag, so I found some sheer and sparkly fabric, then put it over the top of a pretty pink print. Add in matching ribbon for the straps, and viola, cute and easy drawstring backpack!
