I have some hints to add to it that might make it a little easier and smoother to make yourself.
1) when you Iron the main wallet squares' open edge back a half inch, iron it before you stitche the other three sides. It's a small thing I know, but I've made a few of these jobbies, and things just seem to go smoother that way.
2)Similarly, when you make the flap from the loop of fabric, iron down that half inch before stitching the ends together. I find that it's a lot easier to get a straight line that way.
In response to the coin flap;
to make that part, which isn't included in the tutorial, I took a piece of fabric, pressed the sides in half an inch, folded it in half (right sides together and stitched it. This was just to make it a little more thick/durable to larger amounts of coin. Then I stitched three sides of the square onto the wallet , and made a similar square about the same size, and the same way, but stitching the sides closed before stitching it onto the wallet. I made the flap of the pocket the same size as the coin pocket itself which I think will keep coin in a lot more (ie: there's a lot more fabric to slip out of the way to let coin out. You could attatch a strip of velcro or soemthing if you wanted to)
hey guys. in a desperate need to sew something I actually liked for the first time in months, I put together this shirt, which an existing red t-shirt, 3 zippers and NO ZIPPER FOOT. I don't know what happened to it, but it's gone, needless to say sewing zippers in has never been messier, or as unfinished. This shirt will be redone when I find my zipperfoot or buy a new one.
there should be 8 steps. This message board just won't let me put them all in for some reason. Like, I try to edit it so all of the pictures and steps are in there, but it's just cutting stuff out selectively.
also, I'm not sure why it's not showing up, but step 6 was to punch holes at the junctions of the small little lines and the horizontal one you draw through it. Don't rush it though, take your time there.
Any ideas on why random bits of my tutorial just aren't making the cut?
