I’m sure I’m not alone in starting the day with a couple of cups of coffee and some blog browsing. It’s a nice, calm way to wake up, and I really enjoy it. The trouble is that quite often I see something that totally derails my plans for the day. Like this wallet. Dammit.
My old wallet was looking a bit worse for wear (there’s only so much that Scotchgard can protect against) and I had some more Field Study linen that was burning a hole in my stash (that sounds so wrong, somehow). Coupled with the instant downloadability of the PDF pattern and that was that. Again: dammit.
I made another one of those timeline mosaic things just to show you how quick this pattern is. It’s also extremely well written and even pretty funny in places (intentionally), which is quite a pleasant change.
I wasn’t going to bother with the bow originally, but I’m glad I did because it is the perfect finishing touch. The one thing I would do differently next time, however, is make sure that the nozzle of the Scotchgard can is facing away from my face when I spray it. I have never been so happy that I wear glasses. On the plus side, I didn’t have to wash my face this morning 😉
