  42. Miet says:

    Lovely – and just in time for our travels, too!

  43. deede says:

    What, are you kidding me? Not only would this be great for its intended purpose, but it would be great for my stuff when I go to concerts! I HATE to drag a purse to a concert; you want to dance, you want to jump up and down with the crowd, and there is no way to do so comfortably while watching/worrying about what’s up with the purse. I usually stuff my pockets so full of junk that I look even weirder that I already am, lol! This will completely solve that problem for me.

  44. Holly, you could make one in just about any size!

    Thanks Sew Mama Sew for posting! Teresa

  45. Rachel B says:

    I love anything that helps to be hands-free.

  46. Ramona says:

    I love the green bag lady. I use my bag all the time. Looking forward to making the wallet!

  47. Karen Miller says:

    Great idea. Like the larger ones

  48. Gigi says:

    Pretty wallet! Thanks for the tute!

  49. Holly says:

    Wow! Great – I love the wallet. I see a slightly smaller non-travel sized one in my future. Thanks for the idea!
