I have your standard checkbook cover/wristlet/keychain accessories setup for my product line, but so many people kept asking me to put card pockets on the checkbook cover or a zippered pouch for change... etc etc, that I decided just to say "screw it" and make a damned checkbook-sized wallet.

The pictures may be a little small, but I'm trying to be more gentle on my web server before the host boxes my ears!

Here's the outside of the wallet when closed (notice my nifty new tag?):


Here's the inside, empty so you can see all of the pockets without obstruction:


And here's the inside with cards and stuff to show off all of the pockets:

i love it, but it's a little big for my taste. it would match the wristlet (which i adore, of course!), but let me know when you do some smaller wallets, and i'm so in!  Smiley

Does it hold a checkbook as well?


How much are your custom ones?

rockstr, I tried to make a smaller wallet, but it was not really something I would refer to as "sturdy"... the pockets were floppy, and I don't think they would have held the cards in place at all. I guess technically I could take this design and cut it in half and only have 3 card pockets and a much smaller change area.

beautiful | Brunette, yes it does hold a checkbook. The custom ones cost the same as this one unless the changes requested or the fabric chosen is so outrageous that it takes me longer to construct and requires me to make an entirely new pattern.

How much would it cost for everything but the fabric?
I want a Elvis wallet, but I have a specific fabric that I want. I already purchased the fabric and purchased extra so I could just send that.

Ugh you don't want to know how many designs I had to go through just to get the damned card pockets the right size. PAIN... AGONY...
