The best fabrics, directions, and efforts don't always equal success. I've been working on a trifold wallet. I love the fabrics. I've tried to follow directions. And something just isn't working. Do you see my friend Mr. Seam Ripper? He and I and this wallet will spend some quality time and see if we can figure out what I did wrong and whether this wallet can be salvaged. So back to purses - both envelope and hobo styles. I've begun work on this Abbie's Hobo bag by quilting the band and the strap. Love that batik!
