While at  work one day my cool friend "Blingham" said how cool it would be to make a wallet. We griped about how you can never find a wallet that has all the pockets and cozies that you need. She's very crafty and made a pattern on the spot. So this is her pattern with some slight mods.
Two things that I would do differently are: my strap/closure thingy came out somewhat wonky. I should have sewn it flat to the outside of the back piece. And my zipper is backwards and should be on the upper side of the wallet. A non-sewer would never notice but it is nagging at me. This is my first wallet along with my first post. I would love to hear what everyone thinks good and/or bad.

I love it! It looks great and seems to have plenty of space. Where did you get that awesome calorie fabric at? I must buy some!

I bought the fabric from JoAnn's. All the fabric came in one of those no brainer fat quarter packs...Coordinating for Dummies!

That looks awesome! Wallets that have everything you need are DEFINITELY hard to find. This looks great.

This is beautiful. I am really amused that the calorie counting fabric is the cover for the checkbook and register -- which is also for counting . . .  Wink

Anyway, great wallet.  It looks super functional and cute!

That's really awesome! I'm weird about being matchy with purses, so I've always wanted to try to make my own, but I've been too scared to try so far. This looks so great though!
