Faux Leather Wallet

I decided to try out the faux leather technique from Splitcoast stampers.  I found that I could have gone darker with the pink ink, as it came out lighter after heat embossing.  The layers ended up too thick for my sewing machine, so the inside is a bit chewed looking.  Overall though the technique was simple to do, and I would definitely use it again, maybe for just a small piece of faux leather to put on a card.
Cardstock: pink - Core'dinations
Embossing:  houndstooth - Provocraft
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Other: gold metal charms - unkown, pearl bead, old rose ink - Versacolor, embossing powder, gold thread.
