 **** Tutorial at bottom of page****
**** The measurements are on top of page 2****
This purse is inspired by the fifties poodle skirts. The purse is a design I came up with, and was easy to make. It only has 4 side seams and a pocket inside. The base is plastic canvas square covered with material. The poodles are all felt and the leash I handsitched with sequins.
Inside:
Close Up of poodle:
Close Up of Fabric:

Not only did I make a purse I made a matching wallet similar to my dad's which I found to be really neat, but added a dollar bill slot. It has 4 card pokets on the front and 2 on the back. It opens fully to an L shape.
Front:
Opened Length wise:
 Opened all the way from the front:
 Back:
 Half Opened:
 fully Opened from the back:
 Bill Slot:
The last ones I made are from tutorials for the checkbook cover and the pyramid bag:






If you would like a tutorial for the wallet or for the purse let me know.

Here is the tutorial for the wallet. This is only my second tut, so bear with me.
     The first two are the pattern pieces. You will  have to save them, then print them out on 8.5" x 11" copy paper (standard paper).  If you have trouble with saving and printing, The dimensions are on pg. 2.
***All the patterns allow for 5/8" seam allowance.***

This one is to be printed in landscape.




For the card pockets:
    1. fold down the top edge 1/2" and iron. Fold the same edge again and iron. This is what you'll end up with after you finish all 6.



    2. Stitch along this now folded edge.



To attach the card pockets:
    1. You will need the two interior and two of the four exterior ones.
    2. Looking at it from the right side, folded edge on top, fold under the right hand side. Like what you did for the top edge. Not too much just enough to give a nice edge.
     

    *** If you want a design on the front of the wallet now is the time to do it.
            Like this:


     3. On the wallet piece it self, first attach the first pocket. This is the 2 interior pieces attached to the exterior fabric.  To do this you will place rt. side together placing the raw edge of the pocket approx. 1" from the bottom edge and the raw edge on the sides together.



   Fold up and iron.  For the second pocket you will align the raw edges and the folded edges. Then stitch along the folded sides.
     4. Repeat number three, but instead on the interior fabric along the bottom. For the top you will attach the first pocket as explained, but for the second pocket you will only align the raw edges. After you do this, Iron the interfacing to the underside of the  interior fabric.


*** If you cut the interfacing in reverse, just iron it on the wrongside of the exterior.

For the Bill Pocket:
    1. Attach one of the pocket sides with rt sides together aligning the raw edge to the raw edge on the exterior wallet. Stitch. Iron towards the wrong side of the exterior. Repeat for the interior wallet.

    2. Now place the bill pockets, with right sides together. Pin. 
    3. Also line up the wallet it self with right sides together.
    4. Start sewing from the furthest corner all the way around to the inner corner.

Making sure to leave the space in between the marks open for turning.  Snip the corners.
    5. Turn inside out. Poking out the corners, pushing in the bill pocket and ironing all edges. Handstitch the opening closed.
  Optional You can topstitch but ending where the bill pocket starts.

Last Step: Iron where the wallet folds. For the back, you should Iron towards the bill pocket. (The interior fabric should be showing)

Flip and iron the front down with design facing up.


And your finished!!!!

Your tutorial is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is it possible to tell me the dimensions of the card slot, bill slot and main wallet? I tried saving your diagram but it is giving me trouble.

Thanks a lot Smiley
