DSCF9253DSCF9263DSCF9256

Just finished this navy leather billfold wallet, available in my Etsy shop here. It was hand cut from quality fine-grain navy cowhide leather and durably machine stitched with strong nylon thread throughout.

Fully lined with a bright multicolour stripe print fabric and expertly hand finished. The hand punched triangle motif on the front of the wallet shows the contrast lining colours underneath.

A fold down section with 3 card slots flips up to reveal a further 3 card slots. Each card slot holds 2 cards each, so twelve cards in total.

There is a hidden pocket behind the card slots for receipts and papers, and a spacious notes pocket to fit paper money up to 8cm x 20cm.

The coin pocket has a quality metal YKK zip, and the side panel expands to allow easy access to plenty of change.

All cut edges are hand treated for durability and give a superior finish.

A few Friday links

   black green leather wallet marble lining notesblack green leather wallet marble lining coinsblack green leather wallet marble lining frontI’ve had a productive few days, further refining the construction for my pop coin wallet.

The one above has a marbled, book endpaper style lining I found at Harrogate Knit and Stitch in November 2013. Many different fabric sellers were there, I also spotted a stand promoting Bradford Textile Archive a part of Bradford College, which looks interesting.

I have been exploring my new home city of Bristol by pursuing my interests: record shops (recent discoveries to follow) fabric shops, cinemas and galleries.

As for fabrics, poppypatchwork.co.uk have a wide range of fabrics on offer and are based in nearby Westbury-on-Trym.

Wanted Records in St. Nicholas Market is great for vinyl, think I’ll be back there soon!

Recently made to order as a gift for a film buff…

The wallet is hand cut from soft calfskin leather throughout. The wallet is two tone: black outer/grey inner with contrast yellow stitch. The lining is printed with film reels (familiar to anyone who has been in a cinema projection room) and was supplied by the customer for this special order. The hand punched initials give an extra personalised element.

The hand punched detail on the wallet front refers to… well, it’s very familiar to some people. The lining features singles on recognisable major labels: MCA, Elektra, Motown, Epic, Capitol, Parlophone, and some I don’t know. One for the vinyl obsessive!
