Completing Christmas Orders
I received a call from a woman who lives down the street. She had seen a couple of bags that I had made for another neighbor and she wanted to buy a Christmas gift for her sister. She knew what she wanted. She wanted a Necessary Clutch Wallet, a pattern by Janelle at Emmaline Bags. She wanted a wrist strap and a shoulder strap for it. This is such a popular choice and I have made many of them. She wanted to look at what wallets I had that were already made. Well, I have been busy completing Christmas orders and I only had two of these wallets left. I did give her the option to choose some fabric instead and I would get it to her in a couple of days.
She was certain she had found the perfect fabric.
It was a neutral gray fabric with gray, white and light blue flowers. It is hard to see the light blue in the picture but the flowers on the top of the picture are light blue. So, her decision was made ...but wait.
Her eyes got big and she said'"Wait. That fabric would be the most perfect for her." She was pointing to a completely different fabric. She said that her sister had just returned from a trip to London and Paris. She was right. Her new choice was the most perfect fabric for her. Here is her wallet.
Here is the inside.
I will deliver it tomorrow. I hope she likes it. I had just purchased this fabric. I must have known.
You can get the pattern at Emmaline Bags here.
