Lighthouse Fabric Get Carded and Eloise Wallets






I recently was contacted by a customer that saw the lighthouse Convertible Bag by Sewing With Mrs H that I made a while back.

 She collects lighthouses and was interested in purchasing this bag.  She grew up on the East Coast and now lives in OH and has been to many of the lighthouses pictured on this fabric.  I still had this bag in my inventory so I met with her to deliver the bag.






I got a call from her a few days later after she had gone through my blog and she wanted an Eloise Wallet by Swoon Patterns and a Get Carded Wallet from Dog Under My Desk made from the same fabric but with blue contrast fabric instead of red.




I used a solid color of blue for the inside of both of these wallets.







I made a wristlet strap and a lanyard for the Get Carded Wallet.  I'll deliver these tomorrow and hope that she loves them like she does the Convertible Bag.  You can get the pattern for the Convertble Bag here.  You can get the pattern for the Eloise Wallet here and the Get Carded Wallet here.

  2. They are all just wonderful Marilyn. I have a friend in Oregon who also loves lighthouses. It's great when someone contacts you and they know what they want!

    1. Thanks, Daryl. Sometimes I like to pick out the fabric for a bag but sometimes I like to not have to make the decisions.

  4. How could she not like them, they are gorgeous. Need to look at both those wallet patterns. I am sore I need them both! Love that set! Reminds of the 25 years in NC. Had a 2nd campus on Ocracoke Island on the Outer Banks. Loved having to travel there. Several lighthouses in the area.
