2  MY FIRST WALLETS!!!!!! SOOOO EASY!!!!!! NOW WITH A TUTE!!!! YAY!!!!! image fatty in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lilshuga on: December 09, 2007 10:32:52 PM
hey i'm new here, but this is what i made tonight

first: the screw up Cry...
its too small (dollar bills don't fit), i didn't measure the seam allowance right, and its sewn badly, i have a hard time sewing a straight line.

the savior Shocked:
this came in a little quilting kit for kids, either American girl or klutz, i forget which. i used it to trace around my paper pattern, and then moved it so that the line matched the line i drew and drew a border around my pattern and cut out on the border line. I then had the sew line to use as a guide.

The finished piece Grin:
It came out soooooo good, i have about five or six more to make for x-mas, so if you want, i can post a tute.

Here's How:
step one: trace
trace around your template.(this will be you sew line)

step 2: make seam allowance. (this will be your cut line)

step 3: Cut!
cut on your cut line

step 4: fuse!
iron on your fusible interfacing (on to the back of one of your pieces)

step 5: sew!
sew on your sew line, leaving room to turn. you can leave the gap in the middle of one of the short sides, or on the end of a long side. (remember: right sides together!!!!!)

step 6: turn and irorn!!!
iron the seams of your opening (i left the opening on the long side of piece.)

step 7:iron some more:
fold your wallet and iron. make sure that you gap is either on the long side that will be sewn shut, or on the side that you will attach your tag.

step 8: cut you tag
iron some scrap interfacing to some fabric and cut out a nice rectangle.

step 9: sew!!!
sew your tag on, interfacing side down.

step 10: sew some more!!!
sew up the sides of you wallet

step 11: add you closure and depending on the size of your wallet, add a strap. enjoy!!!!
