We love design work, and we happened to have some excellent material that suited her wishes as far as colors and theme went (chickens, reds and other warm tones), so we got to work.
I then made the watercolor above of the closed wallet (to the left in the painting) overlapping the opened wallet. You can see the cover with its great eggy button and serviceable elastic; to the right you can see the ten credit card slots, coin purse, and sketch/notebook. You can't see the two billfold sections, but the arrows show you where they are.
We love the way Shara's wallet came out, and after she field-tests it for a few weeks and gives us feedback, we'll make whatever modifications she suggests. Stay tuned! We expect to begin selling these larger wallets soon! They measure around 6 inches high by 3 3/4 inches wide closed. (Shara wanted to be able to slip it into her bag.)
Meanwhile, gift-giving has commenced, and-- although we did not jump into the Black Friday fray-- we hope you'll think of us when you're looking for small gifts that are super-easy to mail, stunningly light to carry in your luggage if you're traveling and want to bring a few along for gifts, eminently affordable, and can be custom-made to suit the person you're buying them for.
