I bought some red synthetic leather for making a purse, but I didn’t manage to finish it. My Chinese sewing machine is not intended for such things. But I was very frustrated because I really liked the color and the texture and I wanted to do something with it. So I tried a wallet. 3 layers of leather was the maximum I could sew (with a lot of frustration). That’s why It has only 2 pockets, and one for the coins (which is not made from leather, but from some left over fabric). The seams are not nice at all, but I really like the result. I threw away the old wallet and use this a lot.
I inspired this project from an old project, based on the Organizer Wallet.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
