Item details

This is a PDF SEWING PATTERN that is available for immediate download, NOT a finished product! You will be able to download the pattern from Etsy after payment is completed. The PDF is 8 pages long and includes step-by-step directions with pictures, preparation & construction tips, plus the pattern itself.

the wallet
This pattern is for a slim fabric wallet with seven pockets, one for cash and six for cards. View A is a billfold style, and view B has a button and elastic closure.

This wallet is a great way to showcase different types of fabric, and use up leftovers from other projects. Try upcycling pants, jackets or neckties for the outside or the pockets of this wallet for a customized look!

finished dimensions
The wallet stands 3.5” tall, and is 4.25” wide closed and 10.5” wide open.

skill level
The wallet is an easy and fun project for new and experienced sewers! The pattern includes instructions for applying bias binding, which is a great skill to have and can be applied to many other projects.f

suggested fabrics
Use medium weight woven fabric like denim, canvas, or corduroy for the outside, and lightweight woven fabric like quilting cotton or necktie silk for the lining. Avoid fabrics that are heavyweight, sheer, stretchy, drapey, or with pile.

materials needed
- 1 fat quarter (18” x 22”) fabric
- 1 fat quarter medium weight fusible interfacing (I like Pellon décor bond or craft fuse)
- 10” length of double fold bias tape (regular or extra-wide)
- 1/2” button for view B
- 3.5” length of narrow elastic for view B (I like to cut up an elastic hair tie)
- basic sewing supplies
