This is the first time I've ever sewn a wallet. I've made them out of duct tape and packaging tape before, though. This one turned out wayy better than those EVER did. lol.

I wanted a new wallet, mostly because mine was an old lady-ish style wallet that was meant to hold a check book and a bunch of mom-type stuff. I don't carry a check book with me anymore, and I'm not a mom, so a smaller, lighter wallet was what I was after.

I only interfaced the outer layer.







The outside also matches my purse, which is underneath the wallet in all these pics. I made it using scraps I had around the house, and a tutorial on the burda style website. The only thing I changed was the snap. I don't like snaps, and for some reason I couldn't find a needle, so I used some velcro that took ages to find. lol

C/c always appreciated!

Don't you know I am just a little nuts over polka dots?  I made a wallet similar to yours and now I want one in polka dots   Wink

I'm with you on the snap thing.  I don't care for snaps.  Sometimes they can be so hard to work with, both on the installing and on the finished product. 

Your top-stitching is very well done, your pockets line up nicely and the fabric choices are perfect.  i really love this wallet.  You did a fantastic job.

I love how it's all sober on the outside and partytime on the inside!  Shocked

Nice details with the zipped section and plenty of room for cards as well.

ColourCloud, it's actually SUPER easy. I used all light weight cottons and had no trouble with too many layers. Give it a shot! (Though hopefully your zipper goes in straight. lol. mine was a biatch.)

Thanks everyone!

Your wallet is lovely,  Smiley i`m wanting to make one but i`m having trouble getting hold of really stiff interfacing , the UK sucks for things like that, usually have to buy online for it cos there`s nowhere local Huh
Anyway when i get some i`m hoping mine turns out as good as yours Grin

NuttyWoman, Pelon is really a good brand to check out if you haven't already. I ALWAYS buy pelon interfacing. They have several different thicknesses. It's great. Cheesy
