My husbands wallet is falling apart in small pieces so I made him a new one. "Bajen" is the shortening of Hammarby, a Swedish sportclub. The translation of "Bajen ar dom basta" is "Bajen are the best" and grass green is the main colour they use in the support stuff.

It was very hard to sew because the ribbon was a littel bit to narrow. It was the only one I could find after running throw seven different sewing stores. Considering that I think it turned out quite nice, what do you think?

Your work is always supurb, and this wallet is no exception!  It looks extremely professional and the embroidery is fantastic, too.  I love the compartments inside and the stitching looks great on the ribbon, which doesn't look too small, by the way.  But, it is a pain to sew when it's too thin and you can't see the stitching on the other side, whether it's staying on the trim or going off.  Since you are so generous with your tuts, I don't suppose you'd be willing to give one for this wonderful wallet?  Roll Eyes

(Oh, and that's great about being together for so long.  It's like being friends forever before you even got married, which is the best, I think.  My hubby and I just had our 23rd anniversary.  We only dated for about 3 months before getting engaged, but were friends for a little while first.  Smiley)

Thank you!

I think there have been a similar tut earlier but here is my version. I hope you can make some sense of it.

Be careful when you measure and cut the pieces. Make sure you line up everything accurate and fasten the beginning and the end of all stitching firmly.


Picture 1

This is what you need:

A:1 Interfacing 13 x 23 cm
A:2 and B Beaver nylon (BN) or similar fabric 13 x 23 cm
C BN 11 x 19,5 cm
D:1 BN 9,5 x 7,5 cm
D:2 BN 8,5 x 7,5 cm
D:3 BN 7,5 x 7,5 cm
E:1 BN 9,5 x 8,5 cm
E:2 plastic (I used a old plastic folder) 8,8 x 8,5 cm
F:1 and F:2 Velcro (hooks and loops) 2 x 12 cm
G Nylon ribbing 0,8 x 300 cm (I found a two coloured ribbon so it looks like I have used black on one side and green on the other but it's the same ribbon)


Picture 2

1. Embroider piece A:2, the center of the embroidery should be 14,75 cm from the right edge and 6,5 from the top edge.

2. Iron the interfacing on the back and then sew the Velcro (loops) 0,5 cm from the left side and 0,5 cm from the top.


Picture 3

3. Fold the ribbon (G) on the length  and iron.

4. Sew a piece of the ribbon on top of all pieces (A-E).

5. Sew D:1 to C 0,5 cm from the left edge of C. Place the seam 2,3 cm from the bottom edge.
Sew D:2 on the top of D:1 and place the seam 1,3 cm from bottom edge. Do the same thing with D:3 with the seam 0,3 cm from the edge.


Picture 4

6. Sew the side seams on D:1-D:3 and also sew E:1 and E:2 as shown in picture.


Picture 5

7. Cut three pieces of the ribbon, a little bit longer then 9,5 cm. Burn the top so it don't fringe. Sew the ribbon (folded in half on the length) on the sideseams with two stitches.


Picture 6

8. Place all of the pockets on piece B and stitch the left side seam. Cut a piece of the ribbon about 11 cm, burn the edge and sew on the side seam.

9. Place the Velcro (hooks) 0,5 cm from the left edge of piece B and sew.

10. Put all the pieces together and stitch, close to the edge, the sides and the bottom.


Picture 7

11. Cut a piece of the ribbon, about 53 cm (you might have to cut of some in the end, but better to much than to little Smiley) and burn the edges. Fold about 1 cm in to the big pocket, stuck it in firmly. (now comes the tricky bit) Stitch the sideseam, all the way down to the end. Make a 45 degree fold in the corner and stitch to the other corner. Do another 45 degree fold and also fold the end in to the big pocket (cut of the end and bur if it's to long). Stitch the last side. If you want to you can make another stitch along the sides and bottom. (If the first stitch didn't stay on the ribbon all the way, this stitch will at least make sure of that (but it might not look that good though))

Ask if there is any thing you don't get, good luck to you all!
