Trifold Quilt Wallet Prototype

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Trifold Quilting Wallet Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? I actually made a functional wallet for my sewing supplies. I was disappointed because nowhere in the instructions showed a picture of the inside of the wallet. I had recorded the TV show and was able to go back to it. The instructions don't match what was shown on TV, which made this project more difficult because there were some neat tips on the TV show. I will make this again and if I have Texture Magic, will try using it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a fun project.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • interfacing
  • & thread
  • buttons
  • 3/8" elastic
  • zipper
  • Wonder Tape
  • pony tail holders

Q&A with Arlene C

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Such a great idea! Especially nice for travel. I think the quilted cover works just fine.
Arlene C answered:
Thanks, 2strings. I'm sure I'll find a use for this. It's really fun to make.

I saw this on F&P, too, and thought it seemed very complicated but useful. Love the fabrics you used!
Arlene C answered:
Thanks Deborah. There are quite a few pieces and without a picture to go by, it was tricky trying to remember the TV show so I was glad I had it recorded. I really like the zipper tip.
Karena asked:
Nice functional project. I think I like it better without the Texture Magic, although I haven't tried it. I wasn't crazy about the look. I like the look of your quilting on the outside of the wallet better.
Arlene C answered:
Thank you so much, Karena. I really appreciate your feedback.
