Q&A with Gayle678

Mels Designs asked:
this is too cute....I'm up for making one of these for myself...and I have so many handmade bags....I'll never buy another store bought bag again....lol...and wallets....
Gayle678 answered:
I'm glad I'm not the only one that has only bought a few bags, but have made many. LOL. Wallets are kind of new to me, but for some reason I feel the need to have one to match all the purses I make now.
Mels Designs asked:
I made 3 of those wallets yesterday morning....to cute....I see your point about all the fabric around the edges...whew!....Instead of using new zippers, I used zippers from pants or jackets with the fabric already around the zipper and sewed that in place for the coins....I upcycle stuff ....
