Mandy from Abby Chase Designs knows how to do everything in style! Even carrying your personal hygiene necessities can be cute with her Incognito Wallet pattern!  Ashlee of Tweet Baby Designs recently made this for her daughter and agreed to share a review with us!


This pattern was very easy, certainly easy enough for a beginner. I was able to complete this pattern from beginning to end while my 11 month old napped. That alone makes this a fantastically, well written pattern.

It was very well written with many colorful, detailed pictures. It did not include a printable pattern, only measurements to draw out your own pieces. It was very simple to do and easy to modify.  I made this wallet for my 12 year old daughter who LOVED it. She thought it was a great way to take what she needed to the bathroom but much more discreetly than lugging her purse. I think I will help her make them for her friends for Christmas.

The only change I would make is lengthening the strap for the pad version of the wallet. When you put 2 regular sized pads and a pill bottle in it, the strap is about 1 inch too short. It works well when I use 1 pad, 1 liner and a pill bottle though.

Another trick I will use next time is making 2 stitches across the corners for extra support when turning your corners and cutting my fleece 1/4 inch smaller than my pattern piece to reduce extra bulk in the seams.

I would absolutely recommend this pattern to anyone, from novice to advanced sewist.  I think it is a fantastic gift for that impossible to buy for pre-teen age. Also, its great for the mom who throws everything into their purse or diaper bag. This way you don’t have to hunt down your necessities when you need them the most. :-)

Overall, this pattern gets 5 stars! :-)


Thanks so much, Ashlee!!!

Ashlee used fabric from Patty Young‘s Flora & Fauna collection paired with those awesome full moon dots from Amy Butler! (which will be back in stock sooner or later!)
