I did the preliminaries on making a wallet yesterday (making 2 patterns [cuz I did the first one too small,] cutting the fabric, making the credit card holder thingie...) and today, I finished the c/c thing, screwed up on which piece of fabric I put it on, fixed that mistake, then sewed it together inside out and flipped it. It's only got a couple of steps left before it's finished.
This is what it looks like as it is now. There's one unfinished edge.
This is what it will look like, sorta, once I get it sewn. The parallelogram will be a pocket for change, with a zipper opening.
There will be some kind of closure (a button-snap or whatever it's called, most likely) on the opposite side of the parallelogram to close the wallet.
Closed, obviously. There will be a star made out of the blue fabric attached eventually.
The problem I have is, I didn't have any interfacing that was very stiff and when I went to Walmart, they didn't have any that was very stiff either, so I went without it. Which means it's very limp -
I'm not sure if I like it like this. I know it would be fine, but I'm used to harder wallets.
Do you guys and gals think I should put anything in it to make it stiffer? And if you think I should, do you have any suggestions on what to put in it? I've thought of interfacing (which I can't find,) plastic canvas (but I don't like how you can feel the squares beneath the fabric,) cardboard (which means I wouldn't be able to wash it ever,) or some kinda of flexible plastic but I don't know where I would get it or what it would be.
Suggestions are much appreciated!
