What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you line everything up, as you will see mine is a bit wonky and a bit too short. I think I gave it too much seam allowance and hence the reason it is a bit short adn the credit card pockets don't quite fit. Also I used a 6 Inch zip instead of a 7 Inch zip.

I like it. I'm in the process of making the same wallet. I made a muslin first to make sure I understood the instructions.

That is what I should hasve done! But I got to excited. Looking forward to seeing your wallet finidhed :)

I know what you mean. When I first heard about muslins, I thought it was a waste of time. After a lot of disappointing finished projects with my fashion fabrics, I decided muslins were not such a bad idea. I will post the wallet when it's done.

Great fabric! I now know the value of muslins, too! Kind of like doing the swatch test in knitting to check the gauge! Hate doing that too, but it saves grief!
