I spent Sunday afternoon re-learning how to use my sewing machine. I spent half of that afternoon trying to thread the needle. I started a new project, a mini project, on a whim. I had no pattern, no instructions and no earthly clue what I was doing. I just had an idea, and I thought it could be cute. My sloppy efforts were unsuccessful.
Tonight, I decided to try one last time, and, voila, it worked! Here is the tiny fruit of my labor: a mini billfold wallet in brown corduroy lined in pink felt.
It’s the perfect size for an ID and a couple bucks, and it fits in very small handbags. In fact, I modeled it after my favorite going-out wallet, the one I take when I am going to a bar or a show or somewhere fancy and don’t want to lug everything I normally lug around with me.
My next project? A mini tote bag, I think. I’ll have to start it sooner than later, though, before I forget how to use my sewing machine again.
