Oh my gosh.  That's great!  I love the fabric.

...if I had an IKEA credit card, I'd probably be in debtor's prison right now Wink

Ok, love the wallet! Am in the process of making one for maself, and i have one potentially stupid question, if you would be so kind.

On the tute you linked to, it says you sew around the little window for the zipper and THEN turn the fabric right side...i don't really understand that. how do you sew a square and then turn it right side?

I was confused when I read this too.  You'll see how it works when you do it.  You'll tuck one piece of fabric through the hole you created.

ahh! veddy interesting. hehe. thank you. i thot it might be self explanatory when i just do it. but i didn't want to just do it and then find out i did it wrong.

I love that fabric!! Great job on a wallet that probably would cost 20 bucks at target

Thank you all so much for your nice comments! Smiley

haha, I couldn't imagine the thing about the square around the zipper, too, when I read it. But once you're holding it in your hands it's really easy and you'll see how it works. Smiley

fatgail, it's not a credit card, it's just a card that gets you free coffee while shopping there and sometimes you'll get a little extra discount or little giveaway if you're a "family member". A credit card would be really baaaad for me too Wink

Thank you again! Smiley
Caddy, it was quite easy, yes. Took some time for me to figure out the measurements in cm and I think I got something a little bit wrong, but other than that it's an easy project and I think once you made it you'll be really quick the second time. Smiley

Yay for Germlish!
