I really like the tab.  It looks like intentional, not like you needed to fix a mistake.   Grin

What have I done wrong?
Could be that I sewed too late into the night and rushed the process . . .
Cut fabric, folded and ironed. 

  • To confirm, are the folds accordian style?
  • Are the tops of slots topstitched?  Some photos clearly show topstitches but cannot determine on all photos.
 
Many thanks to you wonderful craftsters that share your knowledge and projects!

first, I think you should mark on your card slot pattern piece where the folds should go.  I cut little arrows in my pattern piece so it's easy to mark.  this way, when folding, you're more likely to end up with straight lines.

really, that seems to be the only problem i see.  

it's kind of interesting looking the way you've done it though.  i actually wasn't sure if that was the intended outcome or not.

good luck!  

oh, some choose to iron all the folds, then topstitch before sewing the layers together.  it's up to you.  i don't.  i'm lazy.  LOL

    you have done nothing wrong, I like how yours came out. With the slanted slots looks like the cards would be easier to get out. --and I love the flags. You did a good job.
 I cut my two rectangle pieces longer to make sure I had enough flap to add the snap.
I pinned mine in several places after ironing to hold it in place when stitching before turning. And I didn't sew across the top, just straight off the sides. After clipping the two bottom corners and turning right side out. I turned the unsewn top in after making sure it folded over far enough to close and hold the change in (and it was a bigger seam, so it wouldn't pull out) ironed it and then topstitched all the way around keeping as close to the edge as I could and still have a straight stitch --- and the cards fit. What really helped were the pins to hold it all in place so it couldn't slip.
I've made two and the slots are different in both and I thought I'd folded exactly following the directions. --not sure which is the right way but both are being used.

I just love these wallets.  Here is my latest:



My favorite part is the lining fabric on the inside:



I used a thick fabric, so I only made three "pockets" to reduce bulk.  I used my daughter's gift cards as guides.  The black hides the details/mistakes very well!!

This is a very cute wallet. I find it amusing that you are holding the wallet up with a sippy cup that I own:)

Gotcha, now that I enlarged the template from the original tute, I see the notches.

Good suggestion.
Thank you so much for looking at my first attempt.  Next time, I will employ a lighter weight fabric for the slots.  'Preciate you generous craftsters!

Yay for home-made, compact wallets!!  I totally tried to make one of those while at work over the summer, but it didn't work, because I topstitched the card slots Undecided...  but that's okay!!  Yours are both really cute, I like the green/purple and the yellow insides, even if it is scrap! Cheesy  Great tute, too!

Had a thought while contemplating my next wallet . . . .
if you added a buttonhole or grommet for the earbud wire, a I-Pod nano may fit in the wallet! 
AND add a loop or ring to hang wallet from jean belt loop!
