Secure your

cards, cash and checks in this sensible tri-fold wallet and checkbook cover that you can sew yourself with this free tutorial.  Designed by Cathy Corcella,  this wallet offers a snap-tight closure, shopping loyalty card sleeves, a zippered compartment, and more.  The finished wallet measures 7-3/4″ x 12″ (open), and  4″ x 7-3/4″ (folded).  This is a nice gift idea too.  Fat quarter friendly, scrap-busting, sewing projects always make me happy!

A Sewing Machine with Custom CMYK-Colored Thread:

The Leitfaden Sewing Machine concept

This design project by designers Monika Jakubek and Anna Müller  named “Leitfaden”.  Do you work with a lot of hard-to-match fabric perhaps found in thrift shops? This very interesting sewing machine should interest you.  Using a swatch of the fabric to use to match colors, The Leitfaden Sewing Machine concept dyes the white thread using CMYK color process, a little like a desktop printer would.  You would never have to stop a sewing project because you run out of the right thread color.  Unfortunately I am unable to find any information about this sewing machine being produced.  I REALLY hope it is a possibility.  Check out the review here.
