This week for my challenge I went rogue. The chapter I'm currently working in, pouches, had 3 projects listed as usual, but I thought the first one was dumb, so I skipped it. (It was making an eyeglasses case by folding a piece of felt in half and sewing two edges). I'll make another, more challenging eyeglasses case later.
But for now, I wanted to replace this challenge with a project of my own that I thought was in the same realm, but would be harder for me to work through. So, I chose this wallet that I've been seeing everywhere, since I wanted one for my own anyway. I found this easy to work through tutorial and set to work.
Cutting the fabric was confusing. I had to think through what elements I wanted to be what color, and figure out which sizes cut they would turn out to be. It was a bit backwards for my brain to sift through, but I got it.
The inside was a pretty fun challenge. I loved making the card side, but the zipper pocket turend out to be pretty tricky. My zipper is inserted a bit wonky ( I HATE working with the zipper foot- I have a lot of trouble controlling it) but it works and it's there. For now that's all that matters haha.

This would be another great holiday gift, so I might make a few more for practice and give them out this year;)
What do you guys think?
