Four Brandt's Blvd Wallets

Wow, This is my first post of the year. I really haven't sew as much as I would like. I've been working on a new bag design I'll be using for my bags. But I can't show you yet. I finished the first test model and I still have to change the way I did something. So stay tuned for a later reveal.

I did manage to make these Brandt's Blvd Wallets. I have others cut already but I'm waiting for some thumb catch closures I bought to finish them. This pattern is from Chris W Designs and you can get it here.

This one is made with a blue print fabric with some French script that I got at JoAnn's. I already had this fabric in a yellowy beige and liked it so I gave it a try in blue.

 This second wallet is made with a black print called Text Me by Wyndham Fabrics. I have to say I love this print.

The third I made with a damask print in black and beige that I've had for a while. This one is by Whistler Studios' Keys Collection.

For this last one I used a very nice black print that has some arrows in white and metallic gold. I used it previously for a bag and wallet and both sold in my shop. So this fabric is a winner! I believe I got it at Hobby Lobby.

This wallet has great features and size. The big cellphone pocket seams to be the most loved feature. I love making it!

All of the wallets are available at my shop:

I still have to make the January Bag of The Bag of the Month Club. Plus I received Sara Lawson's new book Windy City Bags as a gift and I really want to try some of the bags. The designs are really cool. If you don't have your copy I highly recommend it. Do you have it? Have you made any of the bags?

So many bag patterns and fabric and so little time!!!!

Happy Sewing to all!!


  1. I love this wallet, too, Norma. Your versions are great. I bought the arrow fabric, too, from JoAnn's I think. Haven't used it yet, but it looks fabulous here.

    1. Thanks Marilyn! You should use the arrow fabric soon. Bags I've made from it sell well.

  2. Great fabric choices Norma! I love that blue text fabric. Looking forward to seeing the bag you are making now.

    1. Thanks Daryl. Try getting some of the blue text fabric is very beautiful.
