Thanks for the tutorial kmsmaverick!

I made two of these tea wallets so far.  This one was my test one, the second one was a gift for my mother and of course I forgot to take a picture of it.

A few years ago I had made a pair of too-short pajama pants into capri length pajama pants.  The purple fabric used here is from what I cut off of the pants.

I did not use interfacing on this one because it was a test one and I figured I'd be the one using it and wouldn't mind if it were flimsy.  I did interface the one for my mother and it seems more stable.

Thanks again for the tutorial and all the pictures people have posted of their creations.

2  Re: Tutorial: Wallet/Organizer Holder with Pattern in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PurrMinn on: January 27, 2009 10:38:29 AM
I know this thread is really old, but I just had to thank you for the wonderful tutorial and share my finished project.

I changed the design a little so it would fit my needs.  The finished dimensions when closed are 8 in. x 4.5 in.

Here is the outside view:

I didn't attach elastic as a closure, instead I made a belt type thing that Velcros to itself.  It isn't attached to the wallet itself, so it is a little annoying to hold on to when I open the wallet, but I purposely didn't attach it so that I could easily change the belt to give the wallet a new look when needed.

Here is the change pocket on the back: (the zipper tutorial was extremely helpful!)

The belt closure and the change pocket fabric is from an old pillowcase.  The tan fabric of the wallet is from an old skirt, as was the zipper for the pocket.

Finally, here is the inside:

Once again, thanks so much for the great tutorial!  I have always wanted to make my own wallet and now I finally have.
