Today is the last day of Kristine ID Wallet Week - it has been a great week! Cindee Truss Yancey is the winner of yesterday's giveaway! Cindee will receive a Kristine ID Wallet kit soon - congratulations! The last giveaway is going to be the best yet! To learn how to enter the drawing for the giveaway and to find out what the prize is, check out the information at the end of this post!
What a great way to end Kristine ID Wallet Week - with a video of Kylie making a Kristine ID Wallet! Kylie from Lean Mean Sewing Machine makes sewing videos almost every Friday and this last Friday she made a Kristine ID Wallet video. Kylie makes the Kristine ID Wallet slightly differently - she doesn't add the card slots. She makes a lot for craft shows, so she streamlines the Kristine ID Wallet to make it faster to mass produce! She has a lot of great hints and tips in her video, so it is definitely work watching! Make sure to follow Kylie's Lean Mean Sewing Machine Facebook Page to see all her great videos and products!
This week was a fun week to learn some great tips and techniques for sewing the Kristine ID Wallet! I love that everyone was willing to share their ideas on how to make the Kristine ID Wallet even better! Just think, this week we went from a Kristine ID Wallet that looks like this . . .
. . . to this, a Kristine ID Wallet that has cork or faux leather for accents! And we went from this . . .
. . . to this, a larger, classy Kristine ID Wallet that can be made entirely of cork, leather or decorator fabric. We learned so much from Cindy of Cindy's Creative Bags about how to make the Kristine ID Wallet out of thicker fabrics! And we went from this . . .
. . . to this, a Kristine ID Wallet with an amazing flap! Jaby of Sew1980s showed us both in her written tutorial and her video tutorial her technique for making the Kristine ID Wallet extra special!
With all these new techniques for making the Kristine ID Wallet, it seems like a good idea to know how best to sell them too. We learned all about selling the Kristine ID Wallet as well as selling other handmade items from Nicole of Sew Much Moore In Store!
I was so excited to share with you the bag bling I found for the Kristine ID Wallet! Andrie Designs' Add A Little Colour Bag Bling is perfect for the Kristine ID Wallet!
So, what's next? I have heard murmurings that there are people interested in a Kristine ID Wallet sew-along or a Kristine ID Wallet swap! What do you think? Would you be interested in one or both of these? Comment on this post to let me know! I think they would both be fun!
