e's wallet

e is currently infatuated with having a purse. she puts all kinds of things in it, her telephone, keys, blocks, and whatever she finds lying around. her collection of "credit cards" was all over the place, so i decided she needed a wallet to help keep her organized. you can never start too early.
i made the wallet from some scrap fabric, that i accordion folded to make the slots for the cards. i backed the folded piece with another piece of fabric, and zigzagged around the edge. i finished it off with a piece of grosgrain ribbon and a tiny piece of velcro to close. even if it never contains all the cards at any given time, it still gives e a chance to practice those fine motor skills.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog!

    My daughter has been going purse crazy too. We got this for Christmas from family in Italy, and it has about 100 paper punch out things to put in a purse--ballet tickets, checkbook, movie stubs, pens, glasses, coins. So now she has to have all 100 things in her purse all the time. It is just a volcano of confetti!
