Hey is that a pattern you purchased?

I used this tutorial for the general construction of the wallet, and I drafted my own paper-piecing template for the rainbow patchwork. I had to make a few modifications to the pattern as I worked through it, but I'm happy with how it turned out! (The addition of the quilt binding on the top flap - the solid teal part - was because the top was too short to have anything to grab to open it because of how I placed the magnetic snap. In the end, I think it was a very useful and durable addition to the piece.) Good luck and happy crafting! :)
