I got the idea from this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45643.0 who did this with a purse.
Im more of a bag person, but I definitely dont have the patience to do this to make a bigger bag.
This was my first attempt at doing this and it wouldve looked better, had I not run out of tape the first night I tried it.

Anyway.. this is my version of the wallet. It fits money perfectly, but it only has one pocket. My sister liked it so I cut out her name in Magazine clippings and put it on the back (I did it after I took the pictures). Im not one for measuring or being precise so its kinda sloppy but still! my first attempt.

I love it! 

I saw the tutorial too, and wanted to try it, but also don't have the patience to do a whole bag - so this is the perfect solution!!

Great job!  And thanks for the idea!
