Sickness and excitment


Hi guys, sorry to keep you waiting so long for a new tutorial but a new one will definitely be up in the next few days. I'm still really sick - the kind where I'm been forced to go see the doctor tomorrow =( not that I dislike doctors because that would be ironic, but just means its SERIOUS. 

So anyways I have a good friend's birthday on the 4th of December and the plan is to make her a travel wallet for her trip to Thailand in January. So it will be done and posted hopefully by Friday at the latest. 

In other news - my patchworky bifold wallet is the featured project at Cutout+keep which is super exciting.

Anyways please check back on Friday for the tutorial and sorry again to keep you waiting.

Tissue pouch tutorial



Thank you to all the people who have commented and become followers of my blog, I really appreciate. It’s making me smile just thinking about it. I’ve been religiously checking my email for updates from blogger to the extent that my boyfriend rolls his eyes and asks if I’m on blogger AGAIN as soon as I open my laptop or check my Itouch! ;p

Anyways all the comments have encouraged me to post a new tutorial. I’m actually helping my boyfriend move house at the moment and its complete chaos, and I’ve managed to catch a cold in Summer! Who does that? So I decided to make a tissue pouch I could chuck in my handbag and go….that's if I can find my handbag amongst all the half filled/half-full boxes ;p

So as always before I start a project I like to look around the net to find inspiration and instructions which can help me with the little light bulb in my head. Below are some tissue pouch tutorials I have found:

Travel Wallet




 So you can obviously tell I got new material, since this will be the second project in as many days in which I have used the red/orange/green/brown floral fabric in.

If you’ve read my intro section you may know I’m going to Japan in December – which is making me smile just thinking about all the fabric I will be able to hoard! But this travel wallet isn’t actually for me; it’s for a friend of mine who is backpacking across Europe over Christmas and New Year.

There are some amazing tutorials out there on how to make travel wallets, so here are some links:


1. Lace Travel Wallet
2. Craftster travel wallet
 3. Burdastyle travel wallet

Patchwork-y Bifold Wallet Tutorial




Welcome to my first tutorial – I’m starting off with a wallet – which is a bit tricky and not first post material but I just finished it today and couldn’t wait. I will post smaller tutorials on inserting a magnetic snap closure and other techniques used in this tutorial. Also I have a tendency to type like I speak i.e. really really fast with bad grammar – so if my instructions are confusing at anytime please feel free to ask me a questions =D

Hi!


Hi and welcome to my blog - All Wrapped Up. 

My name’s Mel and I’m a second year medical student and if I pass all my exams, hopefully on to third year. I live in Melbourne and started crafting in 2008. 

I decided to start blogging mostly to document what I’ve made and hopefully to share some helpful tips. Also I’m going to Japan for two weeks in December and have visited some amazing craft blogs which have painstakingly mapped out where to go for what – so I thought I’d try and give back and also document my travels. I also like baking and will try and post some favourite recipes on here. I also have an account on the craft website ‘Cut Out + Keep’ and will try and transfer all my tutorials over here and hopefully with clearer instructions. 

I hope you enjoy my blog and find it useful or inspiration or interesting enough to come back and visit again. XOXO MEL
