Thanks so much guys for all the great comments! I'm glad I was able to help out ya'll making presants and stufff, my family and friends all have a few wallets from me LOL

for you fasteners, did you have to hammer them together? because i had some and every time i hammered them the little part that sticks up would get hammered flat and wouldn't stick to the other side! how did you do it? haha

Hmm, my first advice is practice a LOT! It took me FOREVER to do snaps correctly lol. I do hammer them on these wallets, I also have a snap setter which is pretty neat but it won't fit into the wallets.  What I do is poke the pokey end of the snap through the fabric and then I push down on all the spikes to make sure they are through the backside of the fabric, then i lay the top part on the snap.. then I hold it real steady, and whack it one time with the hammer.. then several more tiny hits..

And for the bottom part of the snap, the bigger part with the roundish knob (man, i suck at describing things) I actually line it up where I want it, then close the snap and hammer on top of the first one I just hammered... okay I just realized that makes NO sense, but I'll take some pictures when i get off work =)

I have been reluctant to do snaps - I have a few of the kind that look like a hole punch sort of and I also came upon one of the other kind where it has the base thing and then you hammer it on... I really need to just get some scrap fabric and give them a go.  I am not a velcro fan!

I have snaps I ordered from Snap Source and their little setter tool.  They are the easiest snaps I have ever used!  Seriously, since I started using them I haven't messed up a snap yet!

Just thought I would share because it has made my life so much easier!

Then bring it back around and stop where the lines are..trust me, this is a really good trick.

It tucks in nice and neatly, and you now iron over the whole thing which creases the hole and makes it look perfect!! (what a cool trick..only took me like.. a year to figure it out)
I love that trick!  Cool  I learned it from a book and the author said that she had learned it in 4-H, I think.  I wonder why more people don't teach it?  It makes life so much easier.

hi,  beautiful work, so this might be an odd question, but here goes.  I've tried several times to print out tutes and never can get it right.  I end up printing way too much stuff.  I've tried to highlight and copy into word, but then it still doesn't work.  I'm definitely technologically challenged (well, sewing challenged, too), but any ideas??

I guess I could take my laptop with me to sew, but I like directions right in front of my face.

thanks.  catdaddytn

Ohh, your tutorial was just great! You're right, they are so addictive. I make these in a couple different sizes and variations as business card holders, bigger as coupon caddies and with a ribbon/keyring attached as ID holders. They are so handy for everything, and also make great gift card holders (much classier than a paper envelope!).

Once you start, ya can't stop!!

Since I haven't posted 10 times yet, I can only post links, here they are if you're interested!
