    I love this one! It really isn’t hard at all, just follow the instructions slowly- sentence by sentence, and don’t skip steps. I recommend making a test piece first. I will be making many, many, many of these!

    Just what I was looking for! Not hard at all (I had a couple of issues, but some unpicking and rereading sorted them without any real problems, and were possibly down to being ill when sewing) and I had this made in about 5 hours. Not bad for a bored day off sick with flu, and now I have an excellent one of a kind wallet 😀

    I adore Alicia’s patterns. The pearl is no exception. I love this pattern! I followed the mantra “just trust Alicia” and wow! I really feel like I am learning as I am sewing. Someday I hope to be able to adapt patterns for my own, and Swoon is the best way to start. Thanks Alicia! PS the Swoon group on FB is my favorite group ever!

    This pattern required a lot of patience on my part. And by that I mean patience with my children while I tried to get time in the sewing room! It was really fun to sew, following the pattern was easy. I’ll be making more for certain!

    I love the finished wallet… It’s really cute and I’ve showed it off to friends who are amazed that I made it. I had loads of fun making it but it was definitely not easy for me (the Bonnie Bucket was quite a bit simpler). The hardest part was re-reading over and over the part where the snap ends up on the inside of a pocket to figure out what I did wrong but it’s actually right. While I would not call this “easy to make”, it was doable for me, a novice, and fun to make and the result is very nice looking and functional. I will definitely stick with Swoon for my next venture.

    Having completed the wallet…. it just doesn’t make any sense. Don’t get me wrong: the pattern itself is easy enough to follow. But the finished product is silly. If I take out the removable billfold to carry the “essentials” with the wrist strap, I have credit cards exposed for all to see, and a snap flap just hanging there, not snapping to anything. And although the removable billfold can be folded closed to hide any cards it contains, there’s no way to secure it closed, since both snaps connect to the other part of the wallet. When both pieces are snapped together, they’re great, but I can’t see using either of the pieces separately. I’ve loved every other Swoon pattern I’ve made, but I felt this finished product fell a bit short.

    I gave up on making this….the instructions weren’t clear and the wording kept changing – just wasn’t able to follow – really wanted to make it…

    I finished mine today and I have to agree with Amy (see comment above). with a little tweaking I think it could work as two separated pieces. Will work on that. Overall without a very good tutorial on youtube I would have been lost trying to make it. Took a lot of time understanding the patterns. And why cut out round corners instead of rounding it in the final steps? Just a few thoughts. Will make one again with optional long handles and a few minor changes.
