When I posted this last week, I had no idea the responses would include people wanting to buy one! I've received requests here, Facebook comments, and even emails.
On the one hand, this was probably the most challenging project I've sewn thus far, mostly due to my inexperience with zippers. Plus, laminated cotton (and oilcloth) cannot be pinned since the holes will not disappear, so working with all the parts and pockets can be downright slippery. In short, when I finished I was quite sure I would never be making another one. :)
On the other hand, it is working so well for me, and I totally understand those of you who use the cash system and love the idea of something that's all-in-one and cute.
So I'm mulling it over and thought I would ask a few questions to help guide my decision. The good news is that this is one of the few free tutorials I've ever seen that grants permission to sell what is made from it. However, I'm also considering tweaking it a bit so that making several wouldn't be as labor-intensive.
If you are one who has expressed interest in buying a cash envelope system wallet (or even if you're just now considering it), would you please take a few minutes to leave a comment with your answers to these questions:
1.) What are the two most important features that drew you to the wallet?
2.) How many zipper compartments would you absolutely need? (Note: I would still do six compartments--I just need to know how many zippers themselves would be necessary!)
3.) Is there anything you would want added or changed?
I'll wait a few days in hopes of receiving feedback from several people, and then I will make a decision about whether or not to move forward with making them to sell. And if I do, I'll have a better idea of price at that time.
Note: You can now find cash envelope system wallets in my Etsy shop.
