I made a post a while back about my first serious attempt at a wallet here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278057.msg3146072#msg3146072
And I remade it this week, with slightly better sewing skills. I didn't use a pattern, but I also stupidly never use rulers. It's uneven in places but overall the sturdiness and craftsmanship is much better than my first attempt.

Ooh, I have some of the fabric you used for the exterior and I've been hoarding it. It looks so lovely in this particular application; I think your first attempt was still a triumph, but you've obviously improved so much. I might steal your idea curvy framed ID border if I ever get around to doing something like this. Very nice!

Thanks Jukebox! Feel free to use the curvy frame. I've found it does wonders to improve the morale over any unflattering Driver's License photos  Cheesy

quiltgrl, the fabric is by Amy Butler. I got it from a local quilting store but I'm sure you can find it online somewhere. It's from one of her slightly older collections.

Thanks for the comments everyone =)
Amy Butler's fabrics can never fail hehe. The elastic strips would actually be easy to add to a completed wallet, so long as you don't mind a little visible stitching on the outside. Just put a small bit of fabric on top of the ends on the inside part and it still looks neat.
I use them to hold chapstick/lipstick too.
