Sassy Chica Wallet Giveaway!!!

All Folded up and Abstract

Yes, it is true, I am going to give this wallet away to a lucky one of you! You will have to work for it just a little bit though. Nothing hard or time consuming I promise. 

About the Wallet-
The wallet turned out great. I love the way it is so abstract when it is folded up, but when you open it BAM, she's beautiful.

The wallet has eight credit card slips and two deep bill/check pockets. The outer image is embroidered on with matching threads. A single snap holds the wallet shut and keeps your valuables in place.

The materials used were all hand-me-downs, left over scraps of fabric from other projects that had yet to find a use. They were donated to me by my mom and grandma. Who knew their junk would turn out to be such a treasure!

  11. I love the direction you are going-- very artistic. And the wallet is beyond eye-catching. It's gorgeous. And you know what? When it is open, it reminds me so much of my youngest daughter, it's eery! It could be her in profile. I'd love to give it to her for her next birthday.

  14. Thanks all! I'm excited that everyone is loving this wallet.

    Helen- If it's artsy crafty I can pretty much do anything. BUT, I am no good at math! I wanted to study geology when I first went to college but there was too much math involved!

  18. Ashley, Love the new Wallet..Love everything you make..Everytime I visit your site to see new items it reminds me of a song I use to listen as a little girl by Dolly Pardon "Coat Of Many Colors" Her Momma sewed her a coat one winter because they had no money and the coat was made of rags of all colors and every stitch was made with Love! Keep doing your work it's a God Sent Talent! Lisa

  19. I told you it was coming....fear not, I am here to comment. First, I LOVE this one. I wish I could pull it off, but I'm not quite a Sassy Chica. Though I am Sassy. But I know MANY Sassy Chicas who would LOVE this wallet, which is why I'm telling them all about it. You are a creative genius, as well as a talented mistress of used closing. I love what you're doing, and the reasons you are doing it. Keep on rocking it!!

    Just looking at some of your cool creations can at least blow my Lyme blues away for a bit. :)

  27. An Industrial Designer who has just begun to make my own upcycled bags, you blog is a great inspiration. You definitely have a great eye for colour and have evidently gathered together a beautiful collection of reclaimed fabrics. I love the gorgeous silhouette that wraps around the wallet exterior and the complementary fabrics you've used on the inside.
    Just fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  33. If you have an idea or photo send it to me and I will give it a try!
    I can do custom orders. And, I am going to try to get a handful done in the next few weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  34. awesome i hope i can buy one too like the person of above you said. do you know the price you would sell them at?? and can you make them smaller too??

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm going to work on a smaller version this month. The price will depend on the amount of work. The Sassy Chica was a lot of work, the quilted ones like the red and black one (see Gulf Project) aren't so much work since they aren't as detailed with embroidery.

    If you want something custom let me know! At least tell me colors you like to get it started.

    I do have some inventory goals for this month though. After I finish up a few things for Lymenaide I will be able to hit the sewing machine hard!

  36. Hi Ash!! I didnt realise how amazing you are.. .the wallet is soooooo uber cool.. I would love one.... if you were selling one I would so love to buy it... Very very uber awesome... !!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Very cool wallet - I can't believe you're giving it away! I would do all of the things that you have listed above to get entered but I seriously don't spend that much time "social networking." I don't even have any Twitter accts or You Tube accts or whatever else you have listed. Just a FB. That's all I have time for, I guess. Not sure how everyone else finds the time for all that "socializing." :) Love you!
