Jenny’s Amazing Gifts – Part 1

Hello there people,

Today I start a series of blog posts entitled ‘Jenny’s Amazing Gifts’ in which I will share with you a different amazing gift that Jenny, my wife and the illustrious creator of beautiful things over at Junky Chicken, has made me over the last 5 and a half years.

There’s 8 or 9 to show you so lets get started!

Now, as Jenny has just pointed out, I actually sort of started this series a few weeks ago with this post. So the second thing I’m going to show you is the amazing wallet she made me a few years back.

My wallet had started falling to pieces after years of being sat on, and I understandably needed a new one, but all I could find in shops were stupid designer wallets, wallets that wouldn’t have things in the right places (or would be lacking essential compartments), or would just be plain crazy.

A shoe wallet?!

So without my knowledge Jenny took my current wallet (while I was asleep or passed out I guess) and carefully studied it’s layout. Then while I was at work (I assume), she would be working away at it in anticipation to whatever celebration it happened to be for (which at this point I really can’t remember).  Anyway, it all turned out very well, as it was a beautiful, perfectly designed wallet.

It was obviously a lot less sat-on when she first gave it to me. =P

Look at all the well placed compartments! So practical.

It’s mind-boggling that this is all handmade, and also that I’m still using this wallet now and it must be at least 3 years (perhaps even 4!) since I started sitting on it daily. The outside is made from various colours and textures of fabric overlapping each other to make a lovely stripy design. The inside has a velcro sealing change section, 3 card sections (that can fit a good 4-5 cards each) and a section for what I can only assume rich people use for wadges of that fancy paper money they use.

He's so rich, he doesn't even want anyone to know!

Anyway, it was an amazing gift and must have taken so much thought, time and effort! So I’m thinking you should all now go and buy something from Jenny’s shop, now you’ve been enlightened to her brilliance…

Or perhaps you need more convincing? In which case, stay tuned for part 2! (or 3)

Speak to you all soon,

Lovely seeing you,

Joe
