Family passport wallets for everyone!!

Okay, maybe not everyone, but it felt like it this week!  I had three custom orders for family passport wallets just this week, plus the already-made one that I had listed in my shop sold!  Phew!  These were all wonderful customers, great to deal with, lots of communication, totally awesome experience!  Without further ado I must give credit to Amber from One Shabby Chick for her great pattern.  Easy to follow, straight forward, and a great finished product.  Thanks Amber!

First up, this customer requested red/orange, and wanted a 6-passport version.  She wanted it to be able to fit in a certain travel bag though, so I modified the 6-pocket design to still have 6 pockets but to be the finished size of the 4-pocket wallet.  And guess what?  It worked!  {forgive the terrible indoor dreary day photos....}


Next up, I had a customer who wanted purple with aqua.  She also requested the same neutral for the interior lining and the strap that I had used for this wallet, and I had just enough to make that happen for her!  Again, the lighting was not great and these colours are not totally true, but I really like how this one turned out.  The colours look so much nicer together in person than they do in these pictures.  It was the best I could do before mailing it off!


The final custom made wallet is not quite in the works yet because specific fabric was requested, which I needed to order.  You'll be sure to see it once it's done though, it's a bit of a sweet story!

Fun! Custom orders must be kind of exciting to work on. :) You did a great job tweaking the pattern on the first wallet. It looks like everything fits really well.
