Contest Winnings and a Cute Little Wallet

A few days ago, the fabric arrived that I purchased with the gift certificate I won from Modern Fabric Studio.  I was so excited!  Amanda, the shop owner, always has a great sale going on, so I spent about an extra $25 of my own money so I could get even more fabric.  I think I ended up with 10 yards in all.

You really should check out her shop right now.  She's got a great sale going on, and I think all the Joel Dewberry fabrics are 35% off plus you can get an additional 10% off at checkout with the discount code on her site (that comes to $5.56 a yard plus $5 flat rate shipping)!  She always sends this adorable magnet in every package.  I've got three now stuck to my frig!  BTW, this is not a paid advertisement!

Anyway, I just couldn't resist ordering more of Joel Dewberry's Heirloom collection.  Every color palette this collection comes in is appealing to me, so I purchased some pieces I had not ordered before.  And I threw in a super sale piece of Amy Butler that I've wanted for a while.

Ok.  It's time to ooh and aah now.

And to make the prize even better, Modern Fabric Studio was offering a free Valori Wells pattern card with every purchase!  I chose to receive the Little Wallet pattern, and I immediately whipped up one in the Opal in Fuchsia fabric.  One pocket inside is made with Tile Flourish in Garnet.  

Isn't it sewVery adorable!?  I even had these tiny magnetic closures that I ordered a while back from an Etsy shop, and they were the perfect size for this Little Wallet.  This was such a fun, quick, and simple project.  I even made two more to give my nieces.  Now I'm all geared up to make a full-sized wallet, but I just need to learn how to sew in a zipper...

I'm very appreciative to Modern Fabric Studio for sponsoring the contest I won last month over at See Kate Sew.  Not only is it fun to win a contest, but it helps that it is something you really would enjoy!  

Because I was so lucky last month and won four contests, I thought it was time I give a little something back to the blogging community.  So if you are interested, please check out the rest of my blog and enter my inaugural contest here!
