{chris's custom wallet}

Don't you just LOVE these fabrics? 
I love the combination of these colors. This is a custom wallet that I made for my dear friend Chris.  
Have you seen a color combo recently that you think would work great for a wallet like this?  How about different prints?  Stripes, polka dots, gingham, characters, floral, chevron, etc.  
Leave a comment and give me some ideas of what you think would look great together.
If you'd like to order a wallet similar to this head over to my shop and place a custom order. You can choose the colors/prints/fabrics and I will try to find fabric as close to what you request as possible.   
Please note that I cannot guarantee that I can find exactly what you would like, but I will do my best.

    1. Thank you Nikki! I wouldn't have normally put these colors together, so it's fun when printed fabrics do the work for you.

    1. Thanks Carrie! I wasn't sure if I wanted to gather up the big circles because I thought it might mess up the print, but I like how it turned out.

    1. Thank you Leah! With Etsy it took a little while, but recently business has been picking up a lot. I think it takes so many sales before your items start getting "seen" more.

  14. Rachelle these wallets are so unique! I love to craft and sew too. Although I am not as skilled in sewing as you maybe, however, it's inspiring for me. I love retro colors together. Like aqua with coral, aqua with red or aqua with pink. Can you see I like aqua? ha ha! I will be following you on Pinterest and blog.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion. I'm going to try that. I heard recently that royal blue & red are going to be the next big color combo in fashion, so I was already thinking of doing those colors, but I really like the idea of a nautical theme.

  25. Adorable! I love anything red and aqua :)
    I just made something similar, but on a much smaller scale. I really like this, though. Perfect size!

    1. Thank you, someone else suggested that color combo too. I did make a "make-up" bag with those colors, you can see it here: http://stitchesbyrachelle.blogspot.com/2013/07/teal-red-pouch.html

  26. Love your shop! This wallet is a great idea and I love the fabric combination. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Very nice, you are very creative. I'm assuming since the wallets and pouches are fabric that they are machine washable. I wouldn't mind a Hello Kitty Pattern or a pattern using my Avatar.

    1. Yes, you can machine wash on a gentle cycle. I usually hand wash mine with Woolite. Thanks for the suggestions. I don't think I've seen any Hello Kitty fabric for a long time, so I'll have to keep my eye out. Your avatar is so cute, that would be fun too!

  35. How pretty! I do not sew at all so I very much appreciate those of you with this talent.

  36. I am a sewer (well more of a quilter), too. I do not like to make purses and wallets because the sewing feels too fussy. So glad, that there are people like you who do like to make those things. The wallet is very cute, and I hope that your shop is doing well.

  40. Beautiful! I love the color combination that you used for this wallet! It is simple, cute, and functional! I tend to hold on to the same wallet forever and get a new one when it starts to fall apart, I think I need to branch out and get some fun into my purse! Krista @ A Handful of Everything
