Pretty {little} Pouch Swap

After many sleepless nights and changes, I have finally finished my swap partner's wallet. I just couldn't read what she wanted in fabric and I hope I finally made the right choice. This is a blind swap. You know who you are making the pouch for but you don't know who is making your pouch.  I used this tutorial from that*darn*kat. It was very easy to follow. The hardest part was understanding how to fold the piece of fabric that makes the credit card storage.  But, I figured it out after a few tries. In this Flickr swap there is a lot of conversation back and forth between the members and it's nice to bounce off fabric choices, pattern ideas and finishes with the group. This group is very talented and I am humbled to be among them. So here it is. I will be adding lots of little surprizes to the package.





Thanks for stopping by

Cute soldiers;) lol! How adorable and I love the little fringe. I like making wallets once in awhile,the only tough part is the top stitching to close it all off at the end:/
