I finally got my hands on some of the Cotton + Steel spring line! I had to sit and stare at it for a few days before deciding what to do with it, but this is the first project! I made velcro wallet cases that can be used for lots of different things. I made these as little gel pen cases. I love how fun these prints were to work with! I based them all on mustard yellow felt and used a pop of bright blue bias tape to finish them off! These cute little velcro wallets would make a great gift, or a fun way to give a gift card!
Want to make some too? It’s really easy!
Velcro Wallet Tutorial
-1/2″ Sew-in Velcro
First cut two rectangles, one from fabric and one from felt.
They should measure 5″ by 10″.
Next, press 1/2″ under on both long edges of the fabric.
Pin the fabric to the felt centering it. Sew close to edge.
Pin the bias tape over the short edges and tuck in the sides.
Sew it on. Then place velcro on flap. Fold up bottom of wallet case to find correct velcro placement for the other side. Sew the velcro in place.
Fold the bottom of the case back up and topstitch at 1/4″ with matching thread.
All done! Now make some more!
Your website has some adds on it that are making it impossible to read your blog. Some you can close and one is covering the entire left half of your blog. I love reading your blog so i hope this can be fixed soon.
I agree with Nicole, The pop-up ad at the bottom is annoying, but the rotating ads on both sides are not only annoying and distracting, they make it impossible to view your content. I’ve loved this site, but will quit following if this is the new format.
Jealous. I want all of these fabrics. It’s looks like they’ll be carried in a good selection of shops near me. troubbbbbble

I do not even understand how I ended up here, however I
assumed this post used to be good. I don’t recognise who you’re but certainly you are going to a
well-known blogger if you happen to aren’t already.
