What materials did you use? A cute wallet/clutch/wristlet I designed. For this version I upcycled men's business casual wear and decorated it with the rose twisting technique from the Sewing Texture class. I used material from slacks for the exterior, dress shirt for the interior, and a tie as the strip for the twisted rose. An inset interior zipper pocket for change and the zipper closure make this a tricker pattern, so may not be for beginners.

What are you most proud of? I am proud of the design I created, getting the rose right on my first try and upcycling.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try this class for adding texture to you creations. I am an experienced seamstress, but still learned a new technic. And the bonus class on shirring is great.
