Making a wallet to help raise epilepsy awareness! This specific project is for all the guys out there with epilepsy that don’t really want a purple stuffed animal, scarf, or anything else that could potentially be taken as girly. Where’s the purple? In the stitching! I’m hoping the stitching blends well enough that a guy could use it but at the same time show that epilepsy is a disease that we can hopefully find a cure for.

I used a light-weight cotton blend for the lining and inside pockets while I used an up-cycled, stretchy blend for the outer cover.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
