So you can obviously tell I got new material, since this will be the second project in as many days in which I have used the red/orange/green/brown floral fabric in.
If you’ve read my intro section you may know I’m going to Japan in December – which is making me smile just thinking about all the fabric I will be able to hoard! But this travel wallet isn’t actually for me; it’s for a friend of mine who is backpacking across Europe over Christmas and New Year.
There are some amazing tutorials out there on how to make travel wallets, so here are some links:
I really liked all three of these travel wallets but I wasn't too sure if a snap closure would be secure enough. When you see travel wallets in stores they all seem to have a zip closure - ones that goes all the way around, and I really wanted to try and replicate this. But having never tried it before I thought it would be an epic disaster. However, given that I pinned the zipper to death and even though I jabbed my poor fingers many times in the process - it wasn't all that bad.
I'm thinking about posting a tutorial for my travel wallet as I have yet to make one for myself for Japan. So if you would like one give us a shout. Anyways, here is the zippy travel wallet.
