This pattern is actually rather brilliant--if you can figure out how to put it together correctly. I consider myself to be a pretty competent sewer, and I found this pattern to be downright maddening at times. I found myself having to read and re-read directions, and I still mangled a zipper beyond repair after misunderstanding the steps involving bias tape.
Again, the pattern itself is extremely clever IF you manage to get it all together correctly. There are no raw edges, no hand sewing, and all the remaining raw edges are enclosed when you attach the zipper gusset. But, getting to that step was frustrating. For future patterns, I'd recommend taking pictures, especially of the complicated steps, to include in the pattern. The free tutorials are nice, but it would also be helpful to not need to jump between multiple documents to get the necessary information.

Hi ThisDizzyGirl! Thanks for the feedback. Where, specifically, did you have problems? I'll see if I can go in and make it clearer. Part of the problem of designing a pattern is balancing the needs of people who like lots of pictures with the needs of people who don't! And I'm still trying to figure it out! Be sure to add your picture of your wallet!
