NoodleHead Zippy Wallet Love

Not all tutorials online are fantastic - in fact, a lot of them are just lemons - but I have to say that I love the Noodlehead Zippy Wallet tutorial. I've made three so far - okay, two that I deemed worthy... One I actually chucked since I don't know what I was thinking when I was sewing it together and decided that it would take longer to rip it apart and fix it than to just remake it from scratch.

I give the Noodlehead Zippy Wallet tutorial two thumbs up!

It's quick - taking about 30-45 minutes to whip one of these bad boys out.
It's a well written & photographed tutorial.
Yeah, it's a keeper :)


The one on the left is for my friend, Karen. The machine embroidery design is courtesy of Urban Threads over at http://www.urbanthreads.com/
I made hers a wee bit bigger to give the embroidery design a bit of breathing room. I didn't want it to be all cramped and all!!

The butterfly one is for me - I just loooove that fabric!! I added that super cute button on the little card-securing flap. It just matches perfectly!
