Penny Inn Sew Along - Week 4 - Home stretch!

If you've made it this far, give yourself a pat on the back!  Now it's time to make the magic happen and put it all together. (Sorry, no pics since I'm trying to get this up and I'm still swamped trying to catch up on my orders!)

Hey look, a new pic...of the same wallet.  :p

Step 15 - Make Welts

That just seems like an odd word to me, but it's fun to say out loud.  (Go ahead, you know you want to try it out now) Now is a great time to use your disappearing pen to mark everything up, we're getting to the point where stray marks may be visible on the finished product.

Step 16 - Front section assembly

This is putting together the part that snaps shut...once again make sure not to iron your vinyl!  How sad would it be to screw it up at this point??  This is also going to be your first taste of the super thick finished seams.  If you are having trouble, switch to a microtex or jeans needle, increase your stitch length, or maybe even pull out a hammer and give the seams a few good whacks to flatten them into submission. 

Step 17 - All the rest!

Now finish up the rest, there are a lot of good pictures in the pattern but of course you can post in the Sew Along event (or in the regular FaceBook group if you are doing this later) if you get stuck!  I can't wait to see the finished ones!
