I made my first wallet


My old wallet was very worn out (oh how I loved the pattern)


So I looked around at some shops but did not find anything I really liked.
So I decided to make my own with the measurement of the old wallet.
I was very surprised how easy it was and that it only took a few hours once I figured it all out.
I machine embroidered some left over jeans fabric and lined it with bandana fabric *heart*

There is a coin pocket outside


 and a note pocket inside

 
Also a vinyl see-through slot and 5 card slots.
(action shot)


Everything is framed with bias tape and I added  small grommet for my keychain

Awesome job!  It would make my brain hurt to try something like that. Your seams look great, all the details , wow you could sell these.

Yours is even nicer than the original.  My DD14 is really into stars.  That is a great birthday idea - embroider stars on denim, then turn into awesome wallet.  The key ring idea is great, too, as she loses her keys all the time.

Excellent workmanship! I have trouble finding something I like too. I may have to follow your example.
