Note to self... "Don't buy cheap snaps!"  Apparently the ones I was using were el-cheapos!  I picked up some pearl front snaps and those worked perfectly! No more problems.  I have this wallet to my aunt, so now I am going to set out to make another one, and attempt my very first tutorial...wish me luck!

Very nice!

When I make a travel wallet or anything that will carry a credit card or any card that has a magnetic strip on it, I do not use a magnetic snap as it will erase the strip on the card and then your card will not work.
Love the magnetic snaps ($$ though) but in this case I would stick to a button/loop regular snap, or Velcro.

Credit cards are pretty hard to wipe out, unless you put them on the counter where there is one of those de-magnetizers.  I have the large magnetic snaps on my handmade wallet and have had no problems with credit cards.

Thanks for the great tutorial.  Putting letters on all the pieces sure helped when putting it together, although I still made boo boo's (my fault).  Regardless, I am thrilled with the results, and I'm hoping my co-worker will be as well, since I will be giving it to her (and will be making another one for myself of course).  Here is the photo of it, I modified the pen holder by putting a loop? tube? in with the big pocket instead of the elastic.

P.S. My co-worker LOVED it!  Yay, I knew she would!

I am glad that the tutorial was understandable.  It was the first tutorial that I have tried to make.  I love your version for the penholder alot better than the elastic that I used.  Glad to see people are getting some use out of it.

I made another one for myself.  My embroidery machine was feeling left out, so I let it join in too Wink.  I screwed up on this one by putting the snap closure on the wrong side, but that's ok with me.  By the way, I can't take credit for my pen holder.  I borrowed the idea from heartofmary's fabric journal cover tutorial here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=269402.0

Thanks again for the tutorial.

Love the tropical pattern.  I used to be a flight attendant and still have lots of friends in the industry... I can't wait to make some wallets for them!

I am going to try one with at crossgrain tie instead of the snaps.  Snaps and I never made friends.  Thanks for the inspiration.
