I have always had an eye for leather purses and wallets, really of all shapes and sizes. Inspired by a friend of a friends handmade leather wallet and her claims of how easy and simple it was to sew together. I promptly took a trip to the local leather shop, Leatherwise, to see what inexpensive scraps I could find to create something on my own. I found myself in heaven. Leather Wise carries all types of leather and the selection of scraps was just what I needed.

To add a pop of color my mom gave me the idea of lining the interior of one of the wallets with a cotton fabric.
I am extremely happy with how these turned out and have plans for several more leather pieces, including a larger purse. These simple wallets have been very handy, to cary cash at the farmer's market and as a chic checkbook holder.
