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!

That is awesome, and I really do love that fabric!  I have one teensy little nit-picky thing to point out: while I do heartily love and adore that fabric, it is a bit difficult to make out which card is which in the card holder portion because the small stripes are so busy.  You might want to try a solid background that picks up a color in the pattern next time to make it easier to grab the correct card quickly.  Again, this is the smallest of things and reflects more of a personal preference than anything else.

interfacing really helped with the cards falling out issue for me.. here is my second attempt. a little better and modified but still needs some work... its rather large too...




over all its about 24 inches long and 7.5 inches wide.  there is one zipper on the outside and an inner zipper for important insurance cards.  i also made the inner card pocket so that it could hold a good bit..


 i am not sure if i will acutally use this one but i really like the fabric. Maybe a gift or something. i really want to make one that i will use tho... maybe ill stick with sewpixie's orig....

Thanks for the feedback! While I don't have any problem finding my cards, I agree it might look nicer with a more demure inside. I'll have to try that next time.

I used interfacing for the body, but not the pockets. I'll have to give that a try next time. Thanks!

Your new one looks great! I like the trifold design. I think I might give that a shot. And a pen-holder pocket. I'll have to incorporate that, too. Thanks for the steal-worthy ideas! Smiley

I used interfacing for every peice. it was a little thick sewing  the card slots but it did help.

Do you have the pattern for this? and/or a tut?  I absolutely love it but can not find a place to download instructions or dimensions...

The tutorial is on page #2 (also reprinted on my blog site under Tutorials). Enjoy!

kblackwellpix I love the extra middle section you added and the extra zipper pocket. I am going to be making another one for a swap and she wants an extra pocket so I might try your layout.

Hi all, I finished up the wallet I made for the IYP swap so I thought I'd post it. I didn't do the pen holder or extra section this time but I did do a 2nd external pocket. I have a TON of double-side fusible peltex think interfacing so I used that in the middle to stiffen it up a bit. Ugh I was dumb though and didn't use a large enough needle...I went through about 6 #11's before I switched to a #16. Dur.  Cheesy

I was wondering if any of the folks who made one NOT using the bias fold tape could share with me the measurments you used?  I have tried to figure this out twice and have had to 'trash' both projects  Angry
I have made one with the bias fold tape, but I am not a big fan of it so I would love to try one without.
TIA!
