I love making my keepsake wallets. Do you remember the one I made recently for my friend who got married earlier this month - the pretty pink one? We were in sunny Spain so sadly had to miss her wedding (which apparently was beautiful, and she had a fabulous day) - but I caught up with her yesterday and she was over-the-moon with her Patchy (she didn't realise I'd made it)! She told me she's kept some confetti, lucky sixpence and a small piece of her wedding dress fabric inside it, keeping all the little bits and bobs from the day in one safe (and pretty) place.
My new Patchy is made up of a number of different fabrics so it's very patchy indeed! All upcycled materials too, with the cover being a blue soft cotton fleece with cute pink and white cows, butterflies and daisies. Inside there's an assortment of florals in pinks and greens and gentle lilac checks. Finished with a fun felt/button heart on the front, blue ribbon ties and bound in pink thread, this Patchy looks very feminine and would make a perfect gift for girls and ladies. Ideal for Christmas too!
