My plan was to make a whole bunch of these little wallets to use as parting gifts for my colleagues at work. I'm on vacation time now and officially retired as of March 8. This will give me much more time for sewing and quilting!
I wanted to use coffee-themed fabric for the little wallets so I scoured some online fabric shops and my LQS (local quilt shop) and found some great fabrics adorned with coffee beans, "coffee" words, and even some fabric printed with those old-fashioned coffee percolators! Here is how things went.
My first batch of browns/beiges:
I added them to my batik blues and Ta Da! I now have 13 little wallets.

See my new labels? Thanks so much to Kaaren at The Painted Quilt for sharing her label source. I bought two kinds of twill labels from the Mommie Made It Etsy shop. The picture above shows my love and hugs labels, and the picture below shows the label that includes my blog site.
Hope you are now inspired to make lots of little gifts. Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you get to your sewing room soon. It's another great day for quilting!
