THANK YOU!  I can't wait to try this, I just got a sewing machine and think this will make an awesome first project.

For those of y'all that used velco closures, do you hand sew the velco on after the wallet is all assembled or do you in advance figure out where the velco should go and sew it on before you sew the 2 fabric pieces right side together?



i just figured out where it went on, and after top stitching around the edge, but before sewing up the sides, i figured out where the velcro went and sewed it on.

seems to have worked fine, and it's still holding up.

I guess my pattern is similar enough I can post my pouches here even though I didn't use the tutorial.




I sell quite a few of these at festivals & to a local shop.

Marrying is easy; it's housework that's hard.

Here's the one I just did! My hubby had to put on the snap for me and broke it the first time. Haha. He's a keeper.

I'm still a newbie so my stitching isn't perfect. I had a hard time getting as close to the edge as I wanted because my sewing machine didn't want to stitch through so many layers. Oh, well. One of the girls in my church youth group loves it and I'm gonna give it to her.

These are headed off to a festival this weekend. You can see how I canged from the curved flap to a straight one with rounded edges. I like it better now. FYI these are all velcro.


More in tattoo fabric. And the larger are the snap style. I'm not a fan of snaps but they looked classier with this fabric. Ignore the headbands

The littile ones are 5 1/5 X 3 closed. The big ones I've never measures but they are large enough to hold a checkbook. The template for it is an odd shaped book so the flat piece is somewhere around an 8 1/2 X 11

Has anyone ever used directional fabric? Instead of cutting into 1/3rds.  I am thinking that I can put the lining fabric right side up and the outside upside down so when I fold it, the fronts will be right side up.  This way I won't have upside down objects on the front fabric, only on the back....

Does anyone really notice the back? I think everyone really looks at the front and how the fabric of flap looks.. Any comments??
