I decided a few days ago that I really need a bigger wallet since my old one just isn't quite cutting it. Last night I got an idea for a trifold wallet with bunches of pockets! This is what I came up with. Enjoy the pictures (if you print them out and put them together its almost like a flip book...not that I would know)

This is the front of the wallet...clearly



This is the back of the wallet because I always have a ton of change!



Now for the flip-book-ness (I know the plastic pocket looks a little wonky, but thats the flash, its actually quite smooth, and the thingie beside it was just for fun, its not a pocket)







thanks for looking AND COMMENTING  Grin

I love the style of your wallet!  I like that you don't have to open it up all the way to show your license.  Your credit cards are still hidden. Will you be doing a tutorial?

Great idea!

Thank you everyone!

Great idea!

I've actually already done one wallet tutorial. You could probably follow it and just kind of turn everything sideways lol. I basically just changed the width and dollar bill pocket area around a bit..the rest of it is pretty much constructed in the same way. If you go through my tutorial and jot down the changes as you read it really shouldn't be difficult at all. Thanks for looking!

Thats amazing! what more could you possibly want from a wallet? it has everything! i like the spare change pocket. I am really envious of all the professional snaps i seen on craftster, i might have to invest in a press (is that what you use?)

its so stylish too, i love the little details.

thanks! umm actually the big snap is a magnetic snap by Purse-n-alize-it at JoAnns. The little snap on the change purse uses a press thing but its only $8 at walmart. You should get one! I use mine all the time =)

What a fantastic wallet. I really like how you added the different fabric colours.

Great work, I might try that same wallet ... when I learn to sew lol.
