Money In My Pocket!

I'm really hoping that wherever you are that you have had a better day weather wise than we have in Kent today,it's rained on and off all day,there was even a thunder storm.
Just a quick post today sharing a money pocket made for giving dollars  as a gift to a work colleague. 

I love these huge self adhesive pearls,I cut out some flowers from the papers and added them to the centres.

I stitched through the double layers of papers adding a button onto both sides of the paper to stop the stitches from pulling through. I then added some elastic to the lower edge using a button on the inside again to add strength. 

I'm using this project for the following challenges:-
CYDA 24,Fancy folds,
Inspire Me Fridays,Anything goes,
DYSU 28,Sew,faux or real,
FBC55,3 of something.
Thanks for stopping by, have a good week,
