http://blog.christyscreations.com/tea-wallet-tutorial/ I modified it a bit (adding three and one-half inches to the length so that it could be folded three ways) and VOILA!
Now, there were 12 of these, but of course my camera's battery was almost dead,so I only got these two shots - I think you get the idea. They were quick and easy and a nice way to remember a fun time. They would make an excellent little Christmas gift for friends dontcha think? I used Mary Engelbreit fat quarters for five of them and when that ran out a little wild Zebra print with a pink fabric leftover from Valentine's Day. Buttons courtesy of my button jars - All out of my stash!
Remember in my last post I mentioned I had a bit of trouble with the Huntington Hobo pattern? I decided to try to email the company and ask for help. I received an email response in less than a day with blown up pictures of the strap insertion! Wonderful, I could see it and understand how to install the shoulder strap. I was very grateful and sent back big thanks in my email response. I really did not expect to hear anything back. Just a few days later I received a letter via snail mail from the same company and they sent me a a little pamphlet with all of their patterns listed and a brand new pattern with COLOR pictures which make the process much easier to follow. I believe they now are printing their patterns in color for just that reason. I have no affiliation with Pink Sand Beach Designs, BUT, I wanted everyone who might read this blog to know I think their customer service is fantastic and I will be buying from them again in addition to making more Hobo's from my current pattern. Adios Bernie
