My DIL is 'trying' (!) to do Dave Ramsey's cash budgeting system and asked me to make her a suitable wallet.  It will have to have 4-5 separate zippered compartments (for the different cagegories, e.g. groceries, gas, etc.) to hold coins and notes, plus a section for cards, e.g. library card, drivers licence, video store, etc. (maybe 6?).  I've looked through the wallet patterns here and done a more general search too but haven't found anything suitable.  I can probably work out the the zippered purse parts (simple lined purse with zipper?), but wonder how to join them all together at the base without making lots of seams and doing oversewing because that will make it more bulky, and having coins and notes in all those separate compartments will make it bulky anyway.   Any suggestions?  Advice and links would be appreciated.  Thanks.

I love Dave Ramsey and use his envelope system, the wallet you buy from him uses paper envelopes. This is a link for a tutorial for a paper version but it might translate to fabric. Not sure sewing is my weak point.

For the zippered pockets, basically you cut a rectangle twice the height of the "envelope" height desired, then sew a zipper on each short end; sew across the middle, fold it over and you have 2 "pockets". Or, you can just sew it across the middle directly onto the inside of the wallet, it would save you a step.

Thanks everyone for the links and tips.  I now feel a bit more confident in what to do so will have a go at it in the next few days and let you know the results.  Really appreciate the help.
