For months and months I have been searching for a wallet to make that had everything that I wanted. It had to be a longer wallet that:

a.) Had a zipper compartment for change (did not care if it was inside or outside)

b.) Had to have card slots that the cards fit into (don't know how many wallets I have made that the covered either just the bottom 1/3 of the card, or they were too big and  I spent a long time trying to fish my cards back out.

c.) Had to have a compartment for my paper money.

and d.) It had to snap close. I do not like velcro wallets because they are too noisy when you open them and I feel like everyone is staring at me.

I am not creative enough yet to draft my own pattern and sew it, but it was getting to that point until I found this tutorial for what was called an organizer wallet: http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/1652.
And now onto the finished product! (You may notice that the outside is fabric left over from my making my Amy Butler weekender: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=286833)

The outside:

The inside will all my stuff moved in:

This is so cute, and pretty much exactly what I've been looking for!  I'll definitely have to make one.  I love the fabric that you used.  Smiley

The fabric is simply amazing...Those colors compliment each other perfectly!
I love this wallet...It's everything I would want as well.
And I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates noisy velcro on wallets. Haha.

Great job! I love that fabric too, it's perfect for a wallet. Was this pattern pretty easy to follow? I'm new to sewing bags and things and would love to try this out.

I found it to be pretty simple. I liked how the pattern had you assemble and finish the card and zipper pouch sections, then layer them onto the interior fabric.
