It's sort of a clutch, sort of a travel wallet and most definitely bigger on the inside.

The tardis is a machine embroidery design from Urban Threads.  For the outside, I layered strips of fabric and the cloud shapes and attached them to each other with a zig zag stitch. Then the tardis was embroidered on top.  
The inside of the wallet can hold 8 credit cards with a slot behind for bills.  The other side has a zippered pocket and an ID slot.  There is a clasp inside that can be used for a key or can be used to attach the separate strap - which also can be used as a key chain.  The whole thing zippers closed so nothing falls out - that was the hardest part to figure out.  I basted the outside and inside together (right sides out). Then basted on the zipper - opened all the way and longer than the perimeter - starting at the top and ending at the bottom (both sides).  Then attached seam binding over the edges of the zipper and wallet - machine sewn on the inside and hand sewn on the outside.  If I make another one, I will post better pictures of the process.




This was for one of my partners in the IYP 22 swap  - she took a much better picture (thanks bananaleg!)

I love it! The tardis must be the best motif for a travel wallet.
