Pattern Description:

This is a digital PDF sewing pattern for a minimal, simple wallet design to carry your basics -- with pockets to hold your cash and cards. The wallet is super easy to make with just 3 stitches required. And it can be made out of almost any fabric from around your house. The wallet makes a great gift for men and women - or make and sell these in your own shop!

Combining form and function, this wallet features a simple, minimal design including just the basics for a wallet that can easily be slipped into a pocket, or carried in a clutch. Choose a print or material to match the recipient -- bold plaids, herringbones or stripes make great wallets for the guys, or choose bright colors, or a geometric or tribal design for your on-trend friends. Each wallet only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to make, so you can make one for every outfit!

The pattern you'll receive includes simple and easy step-by-step instructions, with pictures for each step, diagrams, and sewing tips. The pattern has been thoughtfully and carefully created, with all skill levels in mind, and thoroughly tested to make sure it's easy to understand.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Wallet measures 3.75" wide x 2.75" tall


  • Piece of "fabric" that is at least 9" x 12"
  • The "fabric" for this wallet isn't your typical kind. You'll need something that has edges that won't fray, and doesn't need finishing. Here are some ideas: leather or suede; stiff felt or vinyl, oilcloth; an old raincoat, tablecloth or purse; repurposed hard plastic bags (the dollar store has lovely printed ones); or you can laminate any paper like an old map of your favorite city, fun wrapping paper, kraft paper or wallpaper.

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread, scissors, pins, sewing machine
  • Home printer, paper, ruler and tape
