This post is part of the Craft Book Month blog hop at Craft Buds.
Here’s what I made, it’s a wallet from Bags–The Modern Classics: Clutches, Hobos, Satchels & More by Sue Kim. I love this book and have about a zillion pages tagged as ‘To Do’.
I love the wallet, it’s super cute but it did reaffirm my hatred of bias tape.
Initially I made my own nice red bias tape using left overs from this wallet I made, but I had a super difficult time catching the stitching on both sides. Instead I went for commercial made stuff which went better but still isn’t great. I have no idea how to manoeuvre this stuff around curved edges!
