Well, I figured out what the problem is. I’ve been making these wallets for my friends and everybody just loves them.
I decided to actually try one. So surfing ninja got the honor. The idea of these fabulous wallets is that you can put your cell phone in there and carry it in lieu of an actual purse. I even made a detachable shoulder strap for this one.
I was feeling all carefree and proud of myself. Until I realized that I didn’t have my glasses with me. My disappointment was palpable.
Let’s throw a life tip in here, since I seem to be slacking in the life tips category. Necessity is the mother of invention. You can quote me on that. I need to see things, so my “in lieu of an actual purse” needs to hold my glasses. Being a mother, I knew it was time for invention.
Apparently nobody told my sunglasses they would be in a photo shoot. Probably should have cleaned them.
I can put my spectacles in the little compartment and switch ’em out for my sunnies when I go inside. So now, in lieu of an actual purse, I can carry this vision of happiness! I’ll just sit over here and feel proud of myself for a while.
Props to Emmaline Bags, creator of the pattern called the Necessary Clutch Wallet.
Stay crafty my friends!
