What's in my wallet

Not a lot of dough but it's purty and color co-ordinated.
I made this purse from one of my daughter's old purses , and some upholstery fabric I bought when I was re-upholstering a chair.

The colorful purse isn't squished its an optical allusion. So sit up straight and wear vertical stripes and you will look thinner too!

The wallet pattern is by Karen Comstock , I modified the 1st one  to suit my fabric choice. My "Too Bee" Bud Patty sent the "Too Bee" a box of cool fabric from G-Street fabrics , when she moved away to DC and became a out of state  member. We each made a section with  the fabric using a Kaffe Fassett's book for inspiration. I turned my section into my wallet , but I didn't want to cover the fabric up on the back of the wallet with another fabric so I made a change purse  and sewed it in the center of that wallet.
The "Too Bee or Not to Bee " bees together now for 11 years  cause we want to always bee .
And Sew on............
