Wallet Project - 8

I have been away past 2 weeks and now that I am back...  I have to sew something..  :)

My work in progress, Wallet cum Passport holder.   The same design as Wallet Project - 6  with another fabric print. The one made earlier has already gone to a friend.


Meet my new friend, the basting-tacking gun (the blue one on the right)..  :)   I don't do big quilting job..  so, have to make good use of all the small opportunities I have..  :)  use the basting gun on a small quilt wallet... LOL.  :)

3) http://emma36handmade.blogspot.com/2011/05/blog-post.html  --  This is where I got my basting gun.

Another tool, the plastic pattern sheet on the left.   For pattern which I use a few times, I use plastic sheet so that it is long lasting...  

Something like this, but the one I used is thinner... so cheaper...

Thanx for sharing Anic..reminds me of my tacking gun which i used for tacking my price tags..i wonder if i can use it for basting too..i must start searching for the gun..i misplaced it during the moving out...

Hi Ros, the price tacking fastener maybe a bit too thick? Better try it on scrap first in case kain rosak ..

The basting gun's fastener supposed to be thin, should be about the thickness of basting thread... I saw the spec saying something like 0.4mm
