Cork Wallet

Once upon a time, right as the world turned upside down because of Covid19, I was scheduled to attend a guild retreat and our group project was to make a cork wallet.  Retreat was cancelled and finally a bunch of us gathered last Sunday via Zoom to make our wallets.

The pattern is the Lucky Penny Wallet from Sallie Tomato.  It is a great pattern and we all finished out wallets in 2 hours thanks to our awesome instructor Sara.

I am very happy I choose the blue zipper for a bit of color pop plus very, very, very happy I went with a coordinating thread color so my top stitching bobbles are hard to find even if you know where to look.  I had a leftover cork scrap from the bag I made my sister (see it here) which brought a fun accent to the inside and outside of the wallet.

Now I've got my wallet filled with my cash and my cards.  If only I had somewhere to go!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. The zipper is a lovely pop of color and I like the subtle variation in the two cork types. That's awesome that it came together in 2 hours!

  2. Such a great wallet. I am itching to play with my cork! Maybe I will give myself permission soon.

  3. Fantastic job! It's hard to believe that if was made it 2 hours flat! Those will make great gifts.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
