These are so much fun to make although I broke 3 needles and stabbed my finger in the process!! Luckily no blood got near the fabrics, yay!  I get a bit over-enthusiastic sewing as close to the zipper as possible.

They all have two pockets, one for cards/notes and a zippy pocket for cash/keys/whatever. They measure  11cm tall, 13.5cm at widest, 10.5cm at narrowest. And they nearly all close with a snap fastener. Some of them close with a button and elastic cord like to Friends of Dorothy one. There's more pics in my gallery if anyone's interested.










I've made a ton of these and I thought I'd post some here to see what you lovely people think Smiley

Super cute!!!  I like your fabric choices.  And I agree those zippers are a pain in the finger.

Thanks for your comments!

The purple fur one's my favourite too Smiley

It's my own pattern and they are really handy, if you have a ton of cards it could be a pain though. I might add some kind of card separator once I figure out where that would go Smiley
