Problem solved with a pouch

I have a confession. I have a George Costanza wallet.  Don't know what that is? That's the wallet that is too fat to sit on. In my case, it's too fat to close. No, not because it's loaded with cash - I wish! Because it's loaded with all those stupid reward cards. And I also shove insurance and gift cards in there. It's awful.


The other day I took my daughter to the doctor and when my cards went spilling all over the floor I decided it was time to deal with this. I had heard so many good things about Keyka Lou patterns that I went and checked her site out. I found this adorable Zippered Clutch and knew it would solve my problems! Bonus - it comes in 3 sizes!! I made the small one.


It's about 6" wide and 3.5" tall. Don't you just want to eat it up?! I'm so in love with those hounds tooth prints too. I may have to get more even though I haven't used up all I have!


The directions and details are so great on this. I think this is the best zipper I've ever done and it's because of the way she puts these together.



I used some Tula Pink Plume for the lining. That's my wallet behind it holding it up. That gives you a sense of scale.

 I loaded it up with my cards and lo and behold, my wallet now closes! I took a photo of that, but for some reason it came out totally blurry. At any rate, I'm so excited to have this adorable pouch in my purse! Now I need a sleeker bag to put it in....

You crack me up with your Costanza wallet! Your new pouch is adorable! I just love houndstooth. I've only purchased one pattern from Keyka Lou (the owl pouch), but I'm going to check out her other offerings now.

Costanza Wallet appears regularly in my discussions with BFF whose wallet is DEFINITELY in Costanza territory. Maybe I should make her one of those sweet pouches? I adore that houndstooth fabric - what is it?

Very cute. I need to embrace something like this too, especially as my belloved older wallet is starting to fall apart :o(
