Floral Felt Wallet

Hi there, folks! I just wanted to pop in today to share a little felt wallet I put together recently. I had some down time on a trip a few weeks back, so I planned ahead and took this little wallet along with me.

Felt Wallet

I've been wanting a small purse to take with me to the gym. Something just big enough to hold my license and a little cash or my debit card for those post-workout trips to the grocery. It's inconvenient to take my large handbag, but I thought the original Coin Purse Die would be the perfect size.

Felt Wallet Close Up

I cut the body of the purse from Smokey Shadow felt. I decided to decorate the purse with the Stitched Folk Flower die using Vintage Cream, Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist, and Tropical Teal felt. The leaves are Simply Chartreuse and Spring Moss.

Felt Wallet Key Loop

I decided to add a felt loop that was big enough to accommodate my key ring, so I could hang them together on the same hook in the locker room. I simply stitched it between the layers of the purse body. Easy!

Felt Wallet Back

I chose to position the zipper on the back of the purse rather than along the top edge. I just like the way it lays. I used a contrasting stitch around the zipper for an extra little detail.  It's cute, sweet, and just the right size.

Thanks so much for joining me today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
