Here am I, coming up on the last day of Bonnie Christine's wonderful blog hop tour for her new line, "Wonderful Things", for Art Gallery Fabrics. This has been one of my very favorite lines (that's a lie, they are all favorites, but as I can't choose a favorite between Bonnie and my other daughter, Becky, I can't choose a favorite fabric either). I do, however, love the bright colors that she included in this line, stepping slightly away from some of her beloved soft hues we've all come to associate with her style, so evident on her blog.
So, for my tour stop I decided to share a favorite wallet pattern with you. I've made more of these sweet little clutches than I can count because they perfectly meet my needs for what I require in a wallet/purse...a place for cards, money, coins, lipstick, a cell phone and more! And I suppose one of the most appealing things about this pattern is that it's so very easy to make!
The Prima Diva Wallet, by Sew Many Creations is not only beautiful, but one of the most functional wallets you'll ever own. The outside can be trimmed with ribbons, (as shown above using Bonnie Christine's ribbons for Renaissance Ribbons) or in any manner you like. I made one of my favorites using Bonnie's canvas for Art Gallery and added no embellishments at all. And you may recall my woven version from this post.
Just look at all those pockets! You can't even see the credit card pockets, but they are there, neatly tucked in the center fold.
I love how it falls open
...and stays open! It sits nicely on the checkout counter when I'm shopping. And I love getting all those compliments!
Purchase Bonnie's fabrics at a number of online shops or your local shop, including my former quilt shop, A Stitch in Time. Wonderful Things fabrics, offered in cottons, knits, voiles and canvas, in typical Art Gallery quality, are truly wonderful things!
Thanks for visiting my stop on the blog tour! Happy sewing and God bless!
