Sewing and Finances

My husband and I are attempting to use the "envelope system" for our budget. If you don't know, it is basically where you withdraw X amount of $$ from your bank account where X = your budget. You then only spend the cash, leaving credit and bank cards at home for emergencies.

It's working really great. But I needed a place to store each specific $$. So "groceries" does not somehow turn into "yarn fund," you know? (This never happens. Okay, it sometimes happens. But rarely. Like, only when the yarn is super pretty. Or on sale. Or I happen to drive by a yarn shop. Uh...)

Anyway, I wanted to make my own wallet! So I made four cute pouches and then sewed them all together and made this button closer!

I am sad to say this might be my last sewing project for awhile, because my sewing machine is broken at the moment. The tension is all wonky and I can't figure it out! But that's okay--I'm knitting up at storm and completely occupied.
