September Challenge: Day 1

I have started that Craft A Day challenge with a wallet for myself. Why for myself? Because it didn't turn out so great. But I do have ideas for fixes, so I'll be trying again next week. I have too much in my to do box to try again this week. Yes, I have upgraded from a pile to a box. And to be honest, it's more like 2 boxes.

So, this is the wallet. I have the darndest time with regular snap on snaps (is that the right term?). Anyway, I may stick to magnetics and sew-ons. The tools I have tried rarely seem to work. The pockets/slots wound up too thick. I was trying to use interfacing to keep them stiff, but I don't think that'll be necessary. I do adore the fabric though. I have one or 2 more things cut & ready to go with it before I am out.




And this is the material for Day 2's project...

So, one down, um...many more to go, like 29!

....come see Peacocks & Dragonflies' OADCC (one a day craft challenge) - she got me started on this :) ...

That turned out really cute! I hope you can get all the quirks out so you can get some in your shop :)

And I can't wait to see tomorrow's project!!!

That wallet looks good to me. I've never tried those snaps. If you're like me you're a little overly critical of your work.

I'd love to see what you do with that lovely pink netting.

This challenge is certainly ambitious.

Your wallet is cool! I thought about doing that challenge, but I just can't right now. It will be fun to see what you make!
