We’re restarting New Purpose blog, after a long hiatus too difficult to explain. Will be posting lots of pictures and projects as I get ready for Horseshoe Market in Denver on October 6.
Here is the first: upcycling sweater cuffs and ribbing cut off from sweater blanket projects into a wrist wallet to hold cash, credit cards while traveling or just walking around.
I first had the idea for something like this when Marshall and I were visiting a national monument and I had to leave my check my bag, holding ID, cash and credit cards at a check in point that seemed less than secure. Really?
So here they are. I experimented this morning and came up with this first batch. I serged two wristbands together so the length is at least 4″ (enough so a credit card or ID will fit in) and created an inside pocket out of upcycled cotton t-shirt material with a snap to close the pocket. The buttons add decoration.
