Cool Hanging Wallet

In July, Jake Finch, from Generation Q Magazine, was the speaker at my guild's meeting. 
She also did a workshop for us, and LUCKY ME,
I was there for both!!

At guild, Jake spoke to us about the quilt publishing industry and some of the things involved with getting a quilt book published.  She also had a wonderful trunk show of quilts for us to see!

The Saturday after our meeting was Jake's workshop on the "Hanging Wallet".  I had SO MUCH fun!  We started out by making a bookmark, which let us try out the techniques we would be using on the wallet, and be able to 'tune in' our machines. 

Then Jake took us through making the wallet, and she made it so easy.  She had many samples for us to look at and get ideas from.

This is the inside, with one big pocket on the right, and credit card pockets on the left top.

The wallet is really the same fabric as the bookmark, I don't know why it shows up so yellow.

Thanks again Jake!
It was fun & I actually finished something!

If you would like to make a Hanging Wallet for yourself,
Jake has made it available on the
Generation Q Magazine website!

Now I'm going to link up to the July New FO party

Happy Quilting!



Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
