    A Hawaiian bow tuck and wallet

    I made this set for a friend that lived in Hawaii. She provided the fabric. She also sent me the wallet she loves and asked that I make her one to match.........WHEW! That's the last time I'll do that! I do NOT have a pattern for the wallet. I took measurements of her old wallet and went with it. The piece of plastic enclosed in white was the hardest part and looks the worst!!! She says she puts her ID in that and can just pull it out to show when needed. She can't lose it, because it's attached to the wallet. I love the idea, but man was it ever hard to make! I also had fun with my HotFix tool and glued little sparkley gems to the centers of the flowers on the bow tuck.

    You did a great job! Very pretty! I've made a couple of those wallets and find it hard to make the binding neat.

    Thank you!!! I know what you mean about the binding. I double the binding over for the first stitching. It makes it slightly easier....and I keep a pair of pliers on hand for pulling the needle!!!
