whats in your wallet



I like to make at least one homemade gift for the girls for Christmas. This year I tried wonder wallets. The pattern is easy and fun to make. All the girls liked them, especially the green foldy stuff tucked inside. I made up some 'granma' business cards and Melissa took one look and said, "So when the money runs out, we call this number?"



Thanks to my friend Pam for this gift suggestion, they are a lot of fun to make and give. The original pattern calls for a Velcro closure, but I used Pam's idea of elastic, it keeps it nice and tight. It holds all the essentials and is just the right size for a pocket!

Oh that Melissa, she is a quick one! LOL Love the idea of a 'gramma card' and will have to give that some thought, especially as the grands start to leave home and move away...certainly don't want them forgetting their gma!

A friend of my mom use to make these I love it. Don't know if she's still doing it but now I know where I can order one if I need a new one!

That sure is a cute and handy little wallet. I'm smiling at Melissa's quick wit :)
