Renee's Wallet

I'm really loving Renee's wallet. Here's a side view (obviously !) I did my favorite wallet edging in fancy black, taupe and copper. It really pulls all the shades of the velvet together.
The flap edge is a 2-bead edge that I first had done with all taupe beads for the top 'picot' bead, but it was too much, so I alternated the taupe and fancy black and it was much more effective.

Here is the vine on the back (I'm not sure why this picture looks so washed out). The leaf beads are so pretty - one side is olive green and the other has a gold finish. I wish I could remember where I got them.




I always try to incorporate my little signature bleeding heart stem. This time I placed it on the inside money flap.

I can't believe Christmas is two weeks from tomorrow. Where or where did 2008 go?

Wow Lynn, That wallet is gorgeous... Renee is very lucky to you to make that for her... I was looking for the coin after one of your older posts.... And.... it is Eithiopian 25 Matonas (cents) about in the 1930's.... So there is your coin info for the day...

Oh and I saw those lavendar beads at my LBS in a hand they are 3-cuts.... Thanks again.... Deb

Hey Deb! Thanks for the info on the coin - you're the best - I'll pass that along to Renee. Have those lavendar beads turned into anything yet?

Oh... it's a beauty! Your work is always stunning, the design, color and execution of the stitches. It's always such a treat to stop in and see what you've been creating.
