First off, my apologies for taking forever to get this done! I'm one of those people who have a habit of taking on too many responsibilities at one time.

Anyway, this is the tutorial for the wallets I made in this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320504.0

You will need:
1/4 yd. of the main fabric
1/4 yd. of the accent fabric
1/4 yd. stabilizer (or medium weight fusible interfacing)
9 in. zipper
sm. round velcro patch

1. You will need to cut your pattern pieces:

 A. BODY of the wallet will be 8.5"W x 9"H.

Cut 1-Main Fabric, 1-Accent Fabric, 2-Interfacing
 B. CARD SLOTS of the wallet:

     Slot A: 8.5"W x 3"H. Main Fabric--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 6")
     Slot B: 8.5"W x 3.5"H. Accent Fabric--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 7")
     Slot C: 8.5"W x 4"H. Main Fabric--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 8")
Cut Slot pieces look like this (Slot A on bttm of this pic)

 2. Lay these pieces on top of one another so that A is on top and C is on bottom. Then sew down the center

 C. COIN POCKET in the wallet:

     Top Piece: 8.5"W x 1.5"H. Main Fabric, Interf.--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 3")
     Bttm Piece: 8.5"W x 2.5"H. Main Fabric, Interf.--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 5")
 3. After cutting Piece B and fusing interfacing on, fold RIGHT SIDE TOGETHER and sew raw edge. Turn right side out and iron.
     *Back Piece: Use your pattern you cut for CARD SLOT C.--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 8")
Cut Coin Pocket pieces should look like this:

 4. Sew FOLDED EDGE of Top Piece and Bttm Piece to zipper

 5. Lay that on top of Back Piece (RAW EDGE of Back Piece will be at top with RAW EDGE of Top Piece)

 6.Sew FOLDED EDGE of Back Piece to SEWN EDGE of Bttm Piece.
 7. Lay Card Slots and Coin Pocket on top of the Inside Piece. *There should be 1" of space between Slots and Coin Pocket.

 8. Baste Slots and Coin Pocket and places pointed out here and on other side approx. 1/8" from the edge.

 9. WALLET FLAP:
     2"W x 8.5"H. Main Fabric, Interfacing

 10. Fold Flap and sew the sides

 11. Use a scissors to turn it right side out.

 12. Sew around the edge. Set aside.

 13. Lay EXTERIOR BODY PIECE on top of INTERIOR BODY PIECE (Right sides will be together)

 14. Sew along the edge, but leave an opening on the edge of the coin pocket.

 15. Trim excess around edge and clip corners. Turn right side out and iron.

 16. Slide Flap into opening and sew around the edge of the wallet.

 17. Use a ruler to fold wallet. Iron the wallet to set the fold.

 18. Put both pieces of velcro on Flap and press against the Body of the wallet.

     Should look like this when you pull the flap open.


Viola! You're Done!


Hope you are able to follow this tute easily  Smiley

Oh I think you have gone and done it now!!!  Cheesy  There are going to be a ton of wallets being given out this holiday season now lol.

I have a quick question - do you think this would work with snaps instead of velcro dots?  Those velcro iron on dots never seem to stay put in the long run... and also how many credit card slots are there?  Is it just two?

Awesome tutorial by the way - it's so detailed and precise.  Super job!!

Yes, I actually use snaps on the ones I make. I only used the velcro on the tute to keep it fairly simple. Just put the snap on before you sew the opening for the flap shut.
**There are 4 credit card slots. I can fit 3 cards in each one.
This wallet will hold money, change, up to 12 cards, and 2 checkbooks.
And all my coworkers are female so guess what they are getting for X-mas? lol

And thank you for all the comments  Grin

I was wondering though, where is it that you keep the checkbooks? Just in the crease?

Thanks again for sharing this awesome tute!

Thanks again for sharing this awesome tute!

There are pockets under the card slots and under the coin pocket. They are the exact size to slide a checkbook into them.

And the seam allowance...I just line the edge of foot up with the edge of the fabric....so the allowance is just under 1/2in.

Gorgeous wallet - thanks for the tutorial - I have two cut out to work on tomorrow (for Christmas gifts) as soon as I pick up some zippers Cheesy

Edited:  I finished the first wallet yesterday - it was quite easy to do, and turned out very nicely Smiley  The only thing I had a problem with was the topstitching at the end - my machine was having a hard time with all of those layers, even with a jeans needle.  I was thinking that it would be nice to give the wallet more body by adding a layer of thin quilt batting, but I don't think I'd be able to turn it right side out and topstitch it with that extra thickness!

Several people are getting various purses this year.  I can make this wallet with the scraps and include them in the gift without spending much extra and the gift is that much more awesome!  Thanks.

The tute looks great and, once I was able to sit down and read it without a toddler tugging on me, it was very clear.

ShannyAnn:  Thank you for a great tutorial.  Very easy to follow. Did you change needles when you topstitched? I had a mess on my hands so I just ripped the topstitch out and it looks fine but I like the finished look topstitching has.  I think all the layers and the interfacing just was to thick. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Yes, before I turn it right-side out, I trim the seam allowance as close as I can. That way when I topstitch it, it's not going through so many layers. I've never had to change needles, but I've found that upholstery thread holds up very nicely. Hope that helps  Smiley

By the way, All the pics are great!  Cheesy

I don't know if you may see this, but I have a question. I've never sewn before, so I want to do this wallet as my first project. The only part I don't get is when you say the things about folding and raw edges. What does that mean? Thanks! Smiley You're very creative and skilled.

Hi, great wallet & especially the brown & aqua one, I have the same fabric & made a  wonder wallet out of it. I love that color good tute. All the other ones were very pretty too. Love all all of your fabric choices. I'll try & make your wallet soon. Thanks  Wink

 Cool This was very cool. I really loved these wallets. I finally made one for my Daughter's Birthday. The only trouble I had was the coin pocket I wasn't sure if I was supposed to sew down the coin pocket or not it seem I had a double pocket. I did sew it down on the interior fabric it works but still not sure. Thanks


Please tell if I did anything wrong & what you think, I would appreciate feed back. Thanks again.

Okay so I suck at measurements - if I wanted to make this without the zippered coin pocket and instead make that side just a slot for bills - what would the measurement be for the pieces I'd need to cut?
