8 More Little Wallets

I'm still addicted to making these Little Wallets, although not exclusively this time. 
 
 
I'm sneaking in making them in between other larger projects.....whenever I need a quick cute and colorful fix.

 
Some have found their way into mailboxes as a surprise.  I've had many suggestions to sell them.  But I'm not a seller. I'm a giver-away-er.  For me, making things for sell translates into W O R K !!!  Sewing is fun and I intend to keep it that way.  And "giving" is pure joy.

Wow Annie,you are the sewing Queen Bee! Love all the new ones,the materials you use are fab....never see any of that funky stuff over here!

You are right,it's more of a joy to give. Mine has pride of place in my new craft room.......AND because of you,lovely lady that you are,I bought myself a little sewing machine as you provided the inspiration for me to do it. Annie you are my hero :))))

I love seeing these. I love the way you have several fabrics on the outside then when you open them up there is another fabric.
It's always a treat when an Annie blogpost appears on my list.
I totally agree with you that making to sell takes the fun out of making.

These little wallets are so cute and colorful! And I agree that as soon as you sell something it becomes WORK and where's the fun in THAT?

Those little wallets are darling. I love how you included so many different fabrics on each one. Great idea!

I still love them……but alas, not enough to start making them, I guess. I should send you some fabric and have you sew me one OR I should get my butt in gear and get my stuff out again!

Been traveling on business and internet has been spotty at best...so fun to get home and see your color-packed post! I love your bright and happy wallets, and I know they will bring joy to those who open a special "Annie package"!

Bright cheery little wallets of bliss. I totally understand the giving and not selling. I used to think I HAD to sell to be worthy but it only made me sad when people tore everything apart. Giving is such a joyful blessing. Dare to Delight Dear...
