There's too much sky and not enough blue.

This is my first attempt at a wallet.  I've been thinking of making one for about a month now, so today I finally went ahead and tried it.  It holds a little Moleskine paperback notebook.  I'm not really into using a date planner, but I do like making lists and stuff, so this was perfect for me  Wink.  And I made several pockets for cards, because I seem to have a lot.  It took freaking forever to iron the pleats for the card pockets, and the pockets got kind of tilted toward the bottom  Sad  There's also a pocket for bills, I wish I had the patience to put in a zippered pocket for coins...  oh well.

groscheveux: No, i didn't use a tutorial, but I was heavily influenced by this wallet/planner: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16097.0

aww, you guys are too kind!

I got the fabric at Joann's, it was in this section of vintagy-type fabrics and it was something like $3.99 a yard.
