I am determined to master this, can you tell?

I am actually really happy with this one.  I used interfacing on the back, as suggested above, and my cards are staying snug.  I turned it out instead of using bias tape and I was going to insert cardboard into the outside but forgot before I stitched it up.  My elastic was a little loose (before it was too tight and was collapsing the corners) so I sewed a button on the front and use that to secure it closed.

Can someone who really doesn't know how to sew do this? All the wallets shown are so pretty!  I have so much material and what not.  I am going to print out those patterns sewpixie posted and keep looking at the tutorials.  Hopefully I can give this a try.

Wow~ this was quite the involved project!  Thanks so much for the detailed tutorial, especially the zipper tutorial, without it, I'd have been lost!

Here are my results!

I absolutely love this tute.  I started my first wallet tonite and unforutunately was unable to finish it due to buying the wrong size of binding...ohwell..... ill post pictures later. this one is my "first draft" and then i will do one with fabric and mods if need be... thanks sewpixie..

i really like how it is a wallet and and a calender thing in one. very compact so it wont take up as much space in a purse. very great idea.

here is my wallet that i made. its kinda rough on the binding but it was my first time doing it so i didnt expect it to turn out perfect. but the tute worked great.. i dont know why i cut the corners like that. i guess it looked really choppy but the next one i am going to modify a little for more cards well i cant post for a few more posts so ill get it up here soon

I like it, kblackwell! Great fabric choice!

Thank you, SewPixie, for this tutorial! I LOVE it! I got rid of my bulky, heavy planner and my wallet and have downsized to this. I didn't do the zipper pouch or ID window for myself as I wouldn't use them, but they are very cute and I want to do them when I make one for someone else!

I should have gone all the way up with the card slots, but I had already cut the piece and didn't feel like messing with another. The cards do tend to slide out, though, so I want to add a flap or something to keep them in place on my next one.

Thanks again!
