Pretty Pocketbook

Necessity really must be the mother of invention because I had to create this little wallet for myself the other day. My old one, bless it's heart, was falling to pieces and despite fruitless searching for a replacement I decided to make my own from my stash. Using the old wallet as a pattern ( I really did love it) I cut some fabric from an old sheet, installed my first zipper in years (thank you Sew Mama Sew easy zipper tutorial!) , pinned on a sparkly paste brooch and voila, brand new pretty pocketbook.



The old one.. sniff sniff



The new one.. so pretty!

I love it! It's possibly the loveliest pocketbook I've ever seen. Now I want one just like it. Especially the little zippered pocket for change. Mine closes with an inadequate snap, which causes frequent coin spillages. Sigh.
Anyway...fantastic job!
