A friend from my hubs' Nat'l Guard unit saw the scrap of LSU fabric that I had draped over the back of my sewing chair and asked if I could make him something out of it. I suggested a wallet and he said yes, he definitely needed a new wallet. He requested "plenty of pockets" for all his debit/credit/gym membership/other cards.
So I went about looking for a nice wallet pattern with lots of pockets.
I found the Kentucky Bluegrass Wallet on Craftsy and modified it a little to give it more pockets (turned the ID pocket into another bunch of card pockets instead since I didn't have the clear vinyl I needed).

Folded:


For the interfacing I used Pellon Craft Fuse to make it stiffer/thicker:


Before assembly, showing the pockets:


The opening:


It's not quite as neat/crisp as I would've liked but I think our friend will like it Smiley

Thanks Smiley
I gave it to him last night when they came in from drill (night range) and he said it's awesome.
