***** And just like that, the first of the wallets is sold. Stay tuned tomorrow for the next one 🙂 *****
I’m going to try something new today. I hope it works out because it would be really nice to bring my fans some sweet offers like this more on a regular basis.
I’m in the process of finishing 5 new patchwork wallets. A lot of people I’ve run into after making mine have expressed interest in getting one of their very own. So I’m working towards granting your wish today.
Here’s how this little offer is going to go. I want to offer Tawny Bee fans first dibs on the wallets as they come off the Tawny Bee assembly line (um… that “assembly” line consists of me sewing like crazy hehehe)
I will post photos of the featured wallet everyday (read on to see today’s offer). If you really want the featured wallet, make it known in the comments, or on my Facebook Fanpage, or email me tawny (at) tawnybee (dot) com
Please make sure you leave me an email address so that I have someplace to send the invoice. If you don’t want to get spammed I suggest spelling your email address out like I did above in any comment you make, (or message me privately).
I originally thought that I would leave each wallet up for only 3 days before I offered them on Etsy or Zibbet at an inflated price. But instead, I think I’ll leave them up for a week. That will give you plenty of time to see the other ones being offered. Although I have a feeling that these might go fast, so if you really like the day’s feature, then please make it known ASAP before it goes to the next person. I’ll mark the sold ones as such so that you know. I’ll give the winner 24 hours after I send the invoice to pay before I go to the next person in line. Of course there is local pick up and payment if you’d rather do it that way.
So without further ado…. Here is today’s feature!
Some features of this wallet:
The wallet has 20 card slots, 5 coupon or receipt slots, 1 coin pocket, and 1 bill compartment. That’s 27 pockets! dude….
Folded: 6 ½” * 4”
Unfolded: 8 ¾” * 6 ½”
I made this particular wallet outside with Michael Miller’s Home Ec fabric which features a variety of 1950s housewives working in the kitchen. Betsy Bakes baby! Very rockabilly and retro cool.
The inside is made out of a variety of colourful cottons. I stabilized everything with upcycled denim and canvas in between the layers. This gives the wallet a good weight and sturdiness. The coin pocket is zippered (I used an upcycled zipper pulled from an outgrown pair of baby jammies).
If you are an advanced Sewist and have a particular fabric in mind to make one of your own, you can purchase the pattern I used here: 27 Pockets Wallet Sewing Pattern
Today’s featured wallet is selling for $50.00 CDN with free shipping worldwide. This offer will be up for 7 days before I list it in my online shops at a higher price and shipping charges.
What do you think? Do you absolutely need it? If so, let me know in the comments on this page, or on the Tawny Bee fanpage, or in email. First come first serve for this one of a kind offer.
And stay tuned tomorrow for the next wallet offer…. 😀
