My new wallet

I made myself a super cute new wallet today out of a hankie from the thrift store. It looked vintage and was with the vintage hankies at the thrift store, but it says Ford on it and has a pink ribbon? I don't think they had pink ribbon breast cancer awareness back in the day. Anyway, my wallet.

I think it turned out awesome. My only beef is that I made it just a smidgeon too short one way, making it a tight squeeze for my cards. It's usable though, that's for sure. I plan on making a few more of these for the shop soon. They'll be altered so that your cards will slide in like butter, Hot Butter! :)

This is the custom ring pillow I made for a dog to wear during a wedding. I hope the bride to be likes it! I think it looks exactly like her drawing, so I think we should be ok!

I'm drawing for the giveaway tomorrow at 4 pm mountain time. Don't forget to go enter here.
