Hello! I have not been here for some time now as I have not had much spare time to sew lately.  But finally, I got my travel wallet done yesterday after much procrastinating.  I am pretty pleased with the outcome.

The closed wallet is about 4 3/4" by 8 1/2".


This is what the inside looks like.


The left side has two angled pockets, one for the passport and one for the airline ticket and boarding pass and an elastic pen loop.


The right side has an ID window, card slots, two long pockets for some cash and a holder for my luggage key.


The wallet is very sturdy and thick.  I found it quite hard to hand sew the bias tape  Cry  but I think it gave the whole thing a nice finished look.

Thanks for looking!  Your comments are always appreciated.   Cheesy

Heartofmary,  We've missed you!  I always look for your posts to see what great thing you have come up with.  The travel wallet is beautiful!  I made something similar and I agree that it can get difficult to sew through all the layers.  These wallets are wonderful for traveling as you know where everything is at check-in.
Glad to see you back!

I love the design of your wallet! I love that everything is together, because I am the sort of person that just bungs everything in the bottom of my bag and then stresses when I can't find it!!

I love this. It's just perfect! I'm going on my honeymoon soon and an organizer like this is just what I need.

Thank you for the inspiration.

This looks FABULOUS!! I really want one. Any idea what the name/designer of the fabric is? I'd like to buy a few (dozen *cough*) yards of it... Smiley
