First off...my Cell Phone Wallet from Cut Loose Press.
Nice pocket on the back for my phone.
Lots of room on the inside too.
This is the original one I made.
After using it for awhile, I found that the credit card slots were too shallow, and they kept falling out. NOT a good thing! There is enough credit card problems going around these days.
Also it didn't have enough stabilizer or interfacing in it. That caused the pockets to stretch and things got "sloppy" for lack of a better word. It was very hard to put my cards into the slots, as the fabric wanted to roll.So I decided to make the entire wallet 1/2" wider. Oh the difference that half inch made. I also made each of the card slots 1/2"deeper, which has kept the falling out issue under control now.
Then I backed each and every piece with Deco-Bond. It added a lot of layers to things, but I took my time, stitching thru it, so it was not a problem, and it was just what it needed.
I like to hang my keys on a Caribbean-er on the strap, so I made it 1/2" wider. It just feels like it's a little more sturdy.
Lastly, as cute as that little strap and buckle thingy is, once I'd taken the time to feed it thru those rings to open and close it a few times, it became very annoying.
Gone...Velcro is my hero.
Such a great little wallet. I keep it in my purse and take it out when I don't want to carry a big purse around. Everything I need is right there.
This is the perfect tool for those blasted "Rush" hours, but I got to thinking...
It's all about the moose around here!
"Rush Hour" in the Moosestash was born.
Yep, you see it right! A traffic light right in the middle of the wilderness.
Causing a backup, clear back to the trail head!
It's an amazing thing, what the mind sees when those creative juices start to flow!
(or just darn scary in my case)
Creative juices I said, not wine.
Never in a million years did I expect the hardest part of this project to be the photo shoot.
It's been a very long time since I took black and white photos, and let me just tell you, it was not easy.
You sure can see a big difference the backgrounds and light makes.
I sure hope you've enjoyed the little trip thru the traffic jam!!
Seeing your "Rush Hour" projects has been so much fun for me.
Give-a-way you say?
What would be better than giving away that brand spankin new cell phone wallet in those fabulous "Rush Hour" fabrics. You know the one above with the big red button on it!
Just leave me a comment telling me why you think it should be yours!
Today is the last day of the hop. I will be picking my winner tomorrow morning, so don't delay.
