This inspired me to make a planner organizer wallet thing a couple weeks ago... i just now decided to take pictures to post it on here.
I made my own pattern for it, too.

This is the fronttt:




This is it unfoldeddd:


And there's three pockets in it, as well as little random ones for cards and stuff.


i forgot to take a picture of the middle one... but there's a big pocket there too.

Has anyone tried to make this without the bias tape?  Would I be able to turn the edges under and top stitch? 

I made one and it's pretty nifty but I had a hard time with the bias tape  Undecided





I didn't put in a pocket either, I did a zipper in the back but let the wallet itself be the pocket.

I love the fabric you used on that. Instead of bias tape, you could always stich the inner and outer layers together right sides facing and leave a hole for turning. I just have bad luck with turning things neatly so went with the edging.

I agree with sewpixie....I myself used...I have no idea what's it called in English.  tubing?  anyways that outer red tubish thing.   Grin  I just kept a small part of the bottom for turning.  You don't want to make it TOO small because of the zipper and the bulk.  Remember to snip at the right places.

New ideas come my way.

I did one where I turned it and top-stitched and another with the bias tape.



I like the top-stitched one myself, though next time I will use thinner fabrics as it was really thick to top-stitch when I was done. 

The cards keep falling out of the red one I made so I looked and the card pockets are all stretched out.  I just used plain cotton for the lining for that one.  Is there a better fabric I can use that won't lose it's shape so easily for the cardholders?

Etheren, I used plain cotton on mine but what I did was use fusible interfacing on it.  I think it was the medium kind I don't remember.  I still have it and it's held up pretty good.  I just need to take it to the washing machine test.   Wink
