Sunday sewing: whip up a zippy wallet

Zippy Wallet tutorial by Noodle head

What’s on your cutting mat this weekend? As is typical of our quilting habits here on the magazine team, we like to have a few quick-sew-projects up our sleeves, ready to whip up when our bigger projects are taking a while to come together. Today our sewing tables are queued up with…

  • EPP hexies –  in the spirit of slow sewing, these aren’t going to be ready to form a finished quilt top for quite some time to come
  • Lou Orth’s Modern Mint quilt, we’ve cut the fabric & are about to start piecing our pile of HSTs, inspired by Lou’s free quilt tutorial on the blog.
  • These super sweet zippy wallets by Noodlehead! You can find the full free tutorial over at and they’re a lovely way to use up those small pieces of fabric that aren’t big enough for your next quilt project but you can’t bear to part with.

Noodlehead we officially love you! We do enjoy the satisfaction of a quick-sew-project, and we’ll be sewing up wallets for everything we can think of – storing loose change, quilting pins, spare bobbins…

Whatever you’re sewing up this weekend, do share your pics with us – we’d love to see. Share them online with the hashtag#lovequiltingmag
