I have been meaning to make up a new wallet for myself for ages and the one in Zakka Style appealed to me.

I've used my favourite Echino fabric with other cotton/linen blends and a cotton word print for the binding.

I made up a cute little matching card holder to slip inside the wallet as I have lots of cards.

I might still add a wrist strap if I can be bothered picking the binding apart, we'll see.


  1. I just borrowed this book from the library... you've inspired me!!!

  2. This is so cute!! I want that book now. I love that. Wow!! I'm just in love with it.

    ryn: Gumbo is a southern/Louisiana thing. My hubby is from Louisiana. Its a soup consistancy that is made with whatever you have available as a protein (mostly seafood items or sausauge) and then you make a flour/butter consistancy base for the soup and add in corn, okra, and stuff like that. You serve it on rice. Good stuff. Mostly you see seafood gumbo or chicken/sausage gumbo. lol Just incase you were interested. haha

  3. LOL!!! thanks for that, now
    I've learn't something new for the day.

  4. Hey Sue

    Looks fab. I have a friend who wants to make it too, will have to show yours off to her.

  5. I'm really liking this little wallet!! Might have to whip up something like this real soon!!
