My new wallet!

I've been needing a new wallet for quite some time now, and I knew I wanted to make it, but the task was quite intimidating. Finally, about a month ago, I started looking up tutorials on line. I found a couple that I could work with to make what I wanted (I used this one and this one for measurements and some directions). I took another week or so to think about the details. Then I started cutting. It was still an intimidating task, and one I had plenty of excuses to put off for a couple more weeks....

....I got up the nerve to start sewing on Saturday morning.

By Saturday evening all of the sewing was done, and by Sunday I even had all of the dividers cut out and the whole thing was done! So far I'm very happy with it.

The lower portion is for my credit card etc. and my cash.

The upper portion is for my "envelope system" cash, coupons, etc.

I love that right now it has everything I want in it, but it does not feel full! It even matches my diaper bag (which I'll be using again in just about 3 months!). I love the fabric!

Isn't it funny how something can seem so difficult and/or intimidating and so we put it off not wanting to face it? Only to find that it really was not that hard, and even easy! I see that quite a bit in the projects I work on, and I think life is often like that too. Just something to think about.
