I fell in love with this Little Wallet when I saw it on the Alamosa Quilter blog and had to make one.  I love how it turned out and intend to make more as I can think of friends who would enjoy one.
The pattern is by Valori Wells and is on a sewing card by Stitchin’ Post Publications.   You can see more of these cute little wallets on Alamosa Quilter and also at Kelly Girl Quilts.

So cute! I love the fabrics you used! I'm curious, did you hand stitch the opening closed on yours? I didn't see the point and didn't on either that I've made. I think the top stitching is sufficient.

Look at you go! Lynn has another on her blog today, too. I think you already saw it. I love your version, too. So bright and cheery!
