I'm trying to go through this book and take on lots of its projects so I can properly learn how to do things that I've previously taught myself (but taught myself the WRONG way).
First, is the no-cash wallet. The first one was a disaster so it now resides at the craft table and as a tape measure holder. The disaster part revolves around deciding to add a snap in the wrong place! Argh. The second worked (I actually stuck to the directions) and includes a button given to me by my mom years ago.
Second project was the 'charming handbag', which was really fun to make. The liner fabric is a soft, printed corduroy that used to be a shirt at the thrift shop (A J. Jill shirt of all things). I have alot left so I'm going to make other stuff with this as well. I like this but would do the straps different next time. They kind of puff out.
