The other day a dear friend on Facebook reminded me of this wonderful project from a great tutorial. Called the Zippy Wallet, 'Noodlehead' has created the classic little thing that actually has a chance of being made AND of being useful.
I implied to my friend that I would make her one so I got out the scraps from making the Girls' harnesses and this is what I came up with:
I don't think this little gem is going to my friend as it is just the right size to hold essential items like a little cash, a credit card and a driver's licence. Also, this plays into my undeclared resolution to stop lugging a big purse everywhere I go and return to using my Car-go carrier for the just-in-case items I lug around on a daily basis.
Besides which, I don't think she would like one made out of scraps so I will dig out some virgin fabric for her. Right?
I hope your Christmas was a good one. Mine turned out a little differently than I thought it would because the smoked turkey from Sweet Sadie's that I had ordered got sold to someone else!!! Paul and I ended up doing doing a Jewish Christmas with Chinese takeout food and movie watching. After all, the day is not about killing yourself over the stove but about enjoying family.
Alex and the Girls were very happy that Paul was home!
