The evenings are coming sooner: the calling of autumn and sweaters is near.
My work space was heaped with wallet pieces ready to be assembled. Last week I was deliberating over button closures and it was suggested that perhaps snaps or zippers might be a better solution. But "I had it in my mind" to do something different.

I've chosen to use an elastic closure; much less complicated in construction (it's sewn into the seam) and easy to slip open or close. It still has the two hidden pockets as well. As you can see, there are still a few little imperfections but I'll fix that, no problem.


  1. Fantastic solution Barbara! I love the elastic closure. It's practical and very cool looking.
    I really looking forward to autumn, it's my favorite time of year!

  2. thank you so much

    i can understand why you like autumn, but do the colours change there?
