Inspired by this post {http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56805.0}, I've been allowing myself to make 2 of these after reading two chapters of my history course packet (i have to finish the whole thing, so i can write a midterm due thurs,  Embarrassed).  These wallet-y things are nice and easy, so it gives me some insta-gratification.





So the photos (hopefully) are small to save a bit on bandwidth, and there are a bunch more (I've made 8 now) on my flickr site ->http://www.flickr.com/photos/silver-lining/sets/1776945/

Perfect size!  Cheesy
Sometimes when I go out, I wish I didn't have to carry my regular wallet with me, because it's too bulky and there is just too much crap in it!
This would totally fix my problem. Yay!

They are very pretty, I like them a lot!

I'm pretty addicted to making these now.  I can try to make a tutorial if anyone's interested.  It's really easy, so you clever craftsters may not even need a tute!

p.s.  I made 4 more of these tonight instead of reading for that history midterm.  Roll Eyes

There are more photos at my flickr site; I didn't want to eat up bandwidth, since they're all effectively the same, just different fabrics, and also I'm lazy enough not to like to find the image url through flickr.  I've got 4 more in the making, which I'll try to post before class at 1230 today, alond with some kind of a tutorial.  I just gotta remember to take a picture at EVERY step.  Smiley

Ok, here's the tute:

1)  Cut out a general pattern.  You'll need a rectangle that's 4.25"x6"
2)  Lay it on your fabric so you can capture the print the way you want it.  Cut 2 of the original pattern size (for inside & outside) and 3 small rectangles (to be the pockets) that are each 4.25"wide with these heights: 2.25", 2.5", 3.25"

http://www.flickr.com/photos/prncesgwenna/105510341/in/set-72057594072877944
3)  Cut out interfacing in rectangles that are .25" smaller than the fabric rectangles on all sides (this is so that the interfacing doesn't get into the seams and make it hard to turn.  You only need one big rectangle.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/prncesgwenna/105510397/in/set-72057594072877944
4)  Take the pocket rectangles and fold down the top .25" (on the wrong side)

5)  Iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of each of the pocket rectangles so that it holds down the .25" of fabric that you folded.  Also interface one of the big rectangles.

6)  Here you can sew across the tops of the pockets for interest, but I think the interfacing should hold the folded over fabric.  Line up the bottoms of the pocket rectangles so that they match up with the right side of the NON-interfaced big rectangle.  Sew down the edges (just to keep the pockets from moving when you sew the whole thing togeter.  Use the smallest seam allowance possible (so it doesn't show on your final product)

7)  Now that the pockets have been safely secured to the non-interfaced rectangle, place the interfaced one on top, so that the two big rectangles are right sides together.  Sew around the edge using a .25" seam allowance.  (If you look at the big version of the picture, you can see the stitching I did to keep the pockets together)

Cool  Clip the corners and turn right side out.  Sew all the way along the edge of the project, about .16" away from the edge.  This will help keep your project together (hopefully make it machine washable) and keep cards in better.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/prncesgwenna/105510629/in/set-72057594072877944/
9)  Find a matching button, measure it and make a buttonhole in the top.  The small bottom pocket should be easy enough to partially flip inside out to sew the button on through the interfacing.  You're DONE!

Let me know if you have any questions.  Post pics if you make one!
