Make a Exclamation!

Make an Exclamation! Wallet 

I once saw a picture of a  black and white skirt. The skirt was white with a huge black question mark. It looked so cool! I love simple, strong designs. The image has stuck with me for years. I've always wanted to try something similar. I think this may be the first of a punctuation series!

The exterior of the wallet is made form black faux leather and a wine colored faux suede. I did a reverse applique for the exclamation point, that means that I cut the shape out of the black fabric and stitched the wine colored fabric under it to make the image. 

The interior of the wallet is assembled with complimentary fabrics. It has eight credit card pockets and two deep pockets for bills/checks/receipts. the wallet closes with a single snap closure.  All stitching inside and out is black.

The solid red pocket inside the wallet is made from a piece of a red blouse. The rest of the material came from my stacks of store bought fabric, much of which has been donated to me by family, friends and followers.

Price includes shipping and handling. To purchase an item, send an email to me at or a tweet @upcycledbyash
