I have been trying to figure out a great simple wallet that would hold money/coins AND credit cards and all those little bits of paper, but yet not be much bigger than a credit card itself.

WELL!  this morning, while the younglings (age 3, 1) 'ate' (really they fling everywhere) their breakfast, I made up this pattern and stitched it up . . .

First - I would recommend you make the opening for flipping right side out where the snap/aplix would go - so you won't have to top stitch around the card holders - that made it a little teensy bit too small for my liking - but still nice.  Smiley

Thanks for sharing this! It's funny, but I never would have thought to fold the fabric up- I would have cut the individual pieces and stacked them and stitched them all individually. Your method seems much easier and faster!  Now, I might be more willing to make one since you've streamlined the process. Thanks again!

And, I don't use snaps very much since they are a pain to sew on. But your snaps don't look like they are sewn on. How are they attached?

Yes, what are those snaps.  What is aplix?  I have a hard time holding snaps in place and getting them sewn.  thanks.  catdaddytn

Wow! Thanks for the added detail in the tutorial! And thanks for showing the snap press. Alas, with limited funds, I'll have to stick to regular snaps or good old hook & loop fastener...  Cry

Wow! Shocked Thank you for the tutorial!

I've been thinking of sewing a wallet for quite some time now, but never gotten to it. And they all seem so bulky and large.. With your method it looks easy, quick and nice! Smiley Dinnertime here now, but tomorrow I need to try this out Grin

i purposely figured out a way to forego the zipper - as it would add more bulk to the wallet - at least that's what i was thinking.  i bet this method WOULD work for a long wallet - stitched in middle to separate the slot strips. . ..

'sides, i'm not that comfortable with zippers yet, lol.

I used my new froggy wallet all day today and just ADORE it!!  it fits EASILY in my pocket and my gosh, you should see how much change is crammed in tehre - and there's room to spare!  along with all my credit cards, gift cards, id cards, etc.

i stopped at walmart today on the way home and bought some more fabric so i can make several more of my new wallet style - i'm leaving on a trip soon and these will make great gifts!  who couldn't use a new wallet?  *grin*

Great tute and wallet. I love the folding idea. It makes so much sense and better then cutting each piece. Thanks.Smiley
