Zebra wallet...from a bandanna!

My daughter bought a pink and zebra print purse and wanted a wallet to match. I went through my stash and surprise, surprise, I did not have any zebra print fabric. I think I have every other print but that one. Then I remembered-a few months ago I bought a zebra print bandanna for my oldest daughter and she never even touched it. Perfect! I took the bandanna and a solid pink fat quarter, added some craft fuse interfacing, a snap instead of velcro, a zipper and a pattern, and ended up with this (shown here with the purse):

The pattern is called the Whimsy Wallet from This & That Patterns and I'll admit-it was just ok to make. I don't know if I would make it again or maybe I'd do a few things differently. Here is another picture that shows the wallet more close-up (those are my flowerpots in the background-the red one with the white dots looks like a giant mug and I LOVE it. I got it from Joann's.):

And the inside with the gift card pockets (she has no credit cards, of course) and the zipper pocket.
She is thrilled with it.
