or for any other occasion of course!
Here's my latest hand-sewn Patchy Pockets keepsake wallet and, if you don't mind me saying, I think it's very dainty and just perfect as a gift for the bride on her wedding day. It's equally lovely as a gift for any other special occasion of course, but I'm so happy with it that I'll be making one in the same materials for a friend getting married in September.
As usual, photographs really don't do these wallets justice. The two materials I've chosen are both from the recycling centre and both tactile. The two-tone, very delicate pink fabric is like silk to the touch and the contrasting fabric has an embossed dotty pattern in cream. The ribbon trim, with its tiny purple and lilac flowers, finishes off this Patchy just perfectly.
So, for a wedding, what could you keep inside this pretty cloth wallet? A personal message for the bridge and groom? A "good luck" charm for their special day? A tissue or two for those expected tears (of joy I hasten to add)? Notes for the important reception speeches? The key to the honeymoon suite afterwards!? Oh the list is endless! After the big day, it could be used to store wedding memorabilia and photographs all safely in one place.
