Vera Bradley-inspired Keychain Wallets

Let me apologize now for the quality (or there lack of) of these photos now.

With that being said, I didn't realize how long it had been since I digitized or even embroidered anything until today. I almost forgot how to digitize. How terrifying!

Anyway, I needed a new keychain wallet because my poor owl wallet had been taken through the ringer and I noticed that I had added a coin purse to my keys, and that was just entirely too much to tote around. I had envisioned this cutesy little quilted deal that would hold cards, coins, and cash and that could clip onto my keys. So I set out to work. After half an hour or so and a couple of attempts I came up with the perfect thing.

I've been whipping these things out left and right today. I've got a few more that aren't pictured.
I decided to go with some fun fabrics with bright patterns to mirror the Vera Bradley look. I added swivel clips to some and small D-rings to others. I just ordered some larger swivel clips, so I think I will be attaching these instead of D-rings in the future.

I made a few of these with this print. I love the fabric so much that I couldn't stop cutting into it. I made one for myself from this fabric.

I have a few more fabrics cut out to make some tomorrow. I think I'm going to head to Hobby Lobby and pick up a couple more prints and really set to work after I do some custom digitizing.

Again sorry for the horrible photos, but I was so excited that I just had to post these. I will take better pics once I locate my camera and whip out a few more.
