Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sew a straight seam
  • It is helpful to have sewn an item with a sewing machine.

Pattern Description:

Finally a place to hold all of my Credit Cards, 60, and 48 of those store key chain loyalty cards in this wallet that is small enough to carry in any bag at a mere 4" wide x 8 3/8" long. You can choose to do all Credit Card size pockets if you wish, which would make the total credit cards to 84! I wanted a small wallet to hold everything rather than searching through multiple small pouches to find that one card I rarely used but was worth carrying. You know what I mean?

So follow this tutorial filled with full-color photographs, diagrams, detailed layouts and pattern pieces to print at 100%, pin to fabric and cut out and start sewing! It is helpful if you can sew straight lines. If you have followed a sewing pattern in the past then you can make this wallet. You can even make them to sell at your local farmers markets, craft fairs, or in limited quantity in your online shop. I am happy to help you with your project as well. So ladies, lets get organized!
