Anyway! I got the idea for this travel wallet from Jessie's project from this tutorial. This was actually a very selfish project, because I made it all for ME. The weekend before, I got new luggage and it is BRIGHT pink (I'm talking, blinding; there will be no missing that guy on the conveyor!), so this will match perfectly! I want to make the luggage tag too, but I didn't have a plastic folder to cut up to use for the transparent bit. I'll show pictures of that when I get around to it. Not like I'm really going anywhere soon.... When I do, though, this little guy will be right with me! I love how convenient it is.
The button was actually the last of a pack of cover buttons that was just floating around in the bottom of my box, and I thought it would be perfect for this project! I've had bad luck with those falling off, but I
I made some slight changes to the tutorial. Firstly, the pink fabric with yellow flowers was actually upholstery fabric so I didn't think it was necessary to use any interfacing. Also, since I sewed down three of the sides of the passport pocket, I didn't use interfacing there. I followed instructions, like I should have on the ticket pocket, and used interfacing there, because it had 2 open sides, so I wanted it to be a bit more rigid.
This was a really easy project that I did in an afternoon so I was pleased. I love how it turned out. It quite suits me... and my extremely pink suitcase :)
I already have an idea for February and I'm so excited about it! <3 p="">3>
