I often get custom requests in my Etsy shop. It's fun, and sometimes challenging to create what the customer is envisioning. And more often than not, I like the end result so much I offer it as a regular item in my shop after that! This was the case for the Lily Wallet. I didn't have a pattern to go off of, and my customer wanted a wallet to coordinate with the purse she ordered too. I created this wallet and could not resist writing down the pattern to share with you. You can also find the pdf available for purchase in my Ravelry and Etsy Shops.
