Okay, freaky! I was looking at your wallet, thinking that were just like the ones I made (six of them) with matching purses for a trip to Vancouver and trying to remember what I did in terms of snaps because I didn't have the same problem (I did use the pearl type snaps, maybe that's why). Anyway then I looked at your sig. My name too!!!!! Freaky. Smiley

Oh mine were from a pattern out of Adorn magazine. I'll have to find the pics and post them......

OK, I'll be attempting this today.  My FIL is giving us a cruise to the Caribbean in June, so I need something for my passport and other travel documents.  I'll post pictures when I'm done.  Cheesy

Got mine done!   I wasn't too happy with the first one, so I did another one and like it much better.

Here's the picture:

Thanks!  I think the "trim" add a lot. I wanted it to look kind of like piping, but that didn't work.  It was HARD to get the extra fabric in there!  The corners are not great, but it looks much better than the first one I made w/o the pink fabric.

I have been making these for about two years--each one gets better and better Wink -- The ADORN site still carries a pattern but I have templates...

I recommend everyone try this because it is challenging enough and fun--and you can use the darn thing for everyday as well!  I slip my checkbook in and carry a small notebook where my passport would go...it is unique and people always ask where you got it...

This tutorial is wonderful!

I am definitely going to try this one. Great post.

You originally caught my eye because I am working with the exact same fabric right now! Good choice.

The first try, I attached the snaps through only one layer of fabric and it ripped out right away...the second attempt, I redid the flap with interfacing then attached the snap, but same thing, pulled out after a couple uses.  Guess I will just have to take it apart and use velcro.

I've had lots of the same issues with these snaps, and have found the reason to be that they're too tight at first.....sooooo to get around that problem, I use a similar sized drill bit to the female side of the snap and gently tap it into the hole several times....spinning it around each time and pulling it out again. (Kind of hard to explain!) This then causes the hole to open up a bit and not pull on the fabric so much when in use.  To determine the correct size of drill bit, it needs to be JUST slightly smaller than the hole in the snap...and I mean SLIGHTLY smaller...if it's too small, it won't help and if it's too big, the snap won't stay closed when you want it to!

Good luck and I hope my hint helps you.

Hugs

I made this last night and I dyed and printed my fabric for it.  I am going to Sweden in a couple of weeks and my bag is orange and purple.  I'm very excited that it came out so cool.  I haven't put in the velcro yet, but I'm going to use velcro instead of snaps.  Smiley

I love the layout of the wallet, I may try and make one but don't know how successful it will be.
