Darth Vader big boy wallet

Miss C. had another birthday party to attend a few weeks back, this time for one of the boys in her class.

I was a little nervous at first, wondering if I could pull off a handmade gift that would appeal to a boy, but was surprised to see quite a few awesome ideas on Pinterest. I finally settled on this little Darth Vader wallet, using the noodlehead tutorial I had already pinned quite a while back.

The pattern is super easy and the wallet came together quickly. The Darth Vader image came from some leftover Star Wars fabric I had laying around. The outer blue fabric was the last of the remnants of a heavy Ikea curtain I had cut up for other projects a few years back, and the gray came out of my quilting scraps. I used some iron-on interfacing with glue on both sides to keep it from fraying and falling off, then did a simple zig-zag stitch all around.
