My first "cash system" wallet turned out to be so useful that I wanted to make another for receipts. I was out of oilcloth, however, so I used cotton - and it was a disaster. The fabric was flimsy and wouldn't slide under the edging. Then it began fraying... which led to an emotional unraveling on my part, and eventually being thrown in my random junk basket, where it sat until today.
But, since deciding to re-tackle this project, I have added a new tool in my arsenal: Iron-on vinyl (have I mentioned that I love this stuff?).
The vinyl allowed me to use any fabric that I wanted and gave it the stability it needed (it also prevented the edges from fraying).
Now that I have completed this challenge, I must move on. How long do you think it will be before I try the purse? I'm betting it won't make the cut this week...
