It is fun to release a new pattern and then have one of your testers write a blog post about it! Marilyn Brandt wrote about the Kristine ID Wallet on her blog, Shades of Bold on May 8th. Marilyn did such a great job sewing up not one, but two of these wallets during the testing phase for this pattern. I have already featured one of her wallets on my blog last Friday, but I want to show both of her wallets together in one blog post.
I love this brown and blue wallet! The small flowers on this fabric are perfect for the smaller size of this wallet. I also like the brown snap. Marilyn said that she likes to use regular snaps instead of magnetic snaps for a wallet like this and I think it looks great!
Although you may have seen pictures of Marilyn's bright green Kristine ID Wallet in a previous post, I added a couple more pictures of it here. Again, the green snap goes perfectly with the fabric on this wallet. Marilyn and I both like Snap Source for these snaps - they have nice long prongs and are easy to install with their special "attaching tool." The color selection that Snap Source has is really amazing as well!
