Family Passport Wallet

Once again I have pulled out my Family Passport Wallet pattern, designed by Amber of One Shabby Chick (pattern can be purchased here).  I believe this is the 10th one that I have made!  This one was requested by my sister for her friend.  They are a family of 5 so the 6-pocket version of the wallet was in order.


I was given free rein as far as fabrics/colours.  I decided that I wanted to do a colourful pieced outer, and similar to the wallet that I made for my sister and her family, I used scraps to do a bit of patchwork, in this case wonky stripes.  For the rest, I used leftover black/gray fabrics from my Roller Rink quilt.


I really like the purple linen-y strip in the middle, but unfortunately it gets covered up when the strap is closed!!  At least you can see it here!


Thanks again to Amber for such a great pattern - I feel like by now I could make these in my sleep!

Lovely gift for your sister & a great way to carry passports. You could carry paper piecing supplies to do anywhere. Happy Quilting:)
