I was so honoured to have my travel wallet be part of the PBW Featured Projects of 2011 that it got me inspired to try and make an even better version of it.  I completed it last night and what can I say...this must be one of the best things I have ever sewn in my life...


Closed wallet


Open wallet


Left side with pen holder, passport pocket, ticket pocket and one long pocket


Right side with ID and credit card slots, 2 other pockets and luggage key holder


Cover...great fabric, right?


With all my stuff

It has all the features of my first travel wallet (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=382278.msg4523760#4523760) except it has one less long pocket (I thought it was not necessary) and also, one less card slot. It is much thicker than the first one as I used ultra firm stabilizer for the cover and light fusible interfacing for the rest of its parts.  I also made the bias binding tape myself and now that I know how to do that, I am never going back to boring, plain, bias tapes again!

So happy with it.  Anyway, hope you like this one as much as I do!   Cheesy

I love it. I really love it.
Hopefully I'll see it or the pattern for it up in your shop some time Wink. I'd like to give it a try (without having to figure it all our for myself first, lol).

Wow! What a detailed wallet. It's incredible. Doesn't look handmade at all. I'm so impressed at the work and thought put into this. (Not to mention that this wallet would have been absolutely perfect for my 2 sudden trips to the states.) The fabric you used is so very appropriate and I'm eyeing the bias tape or border. Looks like the fabric came that way. What a professional job.

Thank you so much! Btw, I made the bias tape from just a small piece of leftover fabric.   It's better than buying premade cause you can use any coordinating fabric of your choice.
