Fun with Money! Wallet and Coin Purse

So I asked my sister what she wanted me to make her for Christmas. “Well,” she mused, “I already have a scarf, and I still wear the hat you gave me. So I don’t need those things. Hey! I know! I need a wallet.”

So, a wallet it was. I’ve never seen a knitted wallet before, but I made one. I might make another one, because I love the way it turned out. In doing this I learned how to make a seed stitch and a button hole. Also, I learned how to attach a button. I also made a coin purse big enough to hold a bankcard. With this little project, I learned how to attach a zipper and how to sew a liner. I added a button to it for fancy. Special thanks go out to my mother for showing me how to do some of these things. It would have been a sweary day without her.

Both projects are in Lamb’s Pride Worsted (I’m going to get a different kind of yarn sometime), Onyx, on size 6 needles. I made up the patterns for both.
The little gift was a hit.
