I found an old flat wallet in my closet the other day that I haven't used in several months. It had a few holes starting at the corners and was a pink faux leather that just really isn't me anymore. I've wanted to try to recover it or make a new one for awhile now and figured there is no time better than now, right? It was really a lot easier than I thought it would be. To look at a flat wallet you might think there is some complicated process to it all but really it is just material folded around and into the frame and some piping wedged into the space left between the fabric and the frame. I used the leg of a pair of jeans that got cut up some time ago and some scrap fabric and cord for the piping. It took me about an hour and a half to cut it and glue it all and I really like how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

You did a great job. I love anything denim. Did you have to take the frame apart?

Thanks! I was able to leave it all in one piece. Once I took out the piping that was wedged in between the frame and the original cover all I had to do was pull off the cover. The inside card and money holders are also the originals.They had a cardboard backing to keep them stiff so I just hotglued them onto the frame, then I put the new cover on over the whole thing and wdged the new piping in.
