Card Wallet

I was motivated to make a simple fabric card wallet after experiencing difficulty in accessing my cards with the current holder. Though the current holder is slick and stylish, it is not practical and would bulked up the wristlet pouch. 

I used scrap fabric from a skirt which had been shortened for this mini project. There are still rooms for improvement as the stitches and cutting are not as neat as they should be. The other mistake was to add on the key ring at the side of the pouch. I think it just ruined the 'classiness' of the pouch. Lesson learned - Simplicity is elegance. 

Nonetheless, I'm happy to have made something! and I'm already using it.
