I made this homemade wallet for my oldest daughter for Christmas. She just got her permit about a month ago so now she decided that she needed a wallet to put it in. So she asked for one for Christmas and I thought it would be neat to try my hand at making one.
Might I say it was pretty difficult! This project is definately not for a beginner seamstress! I got the pattern & tutorial here, but the instructions were difficult to follow, so I'm not sure I would follow them again anyway. I love the pattern though! I changed it a tad from this pattern though. I rounded the edges on my tab & I used a magnetic snap instead of velcro.
On the left is the zippered coin pocket with a large bill pocket behind it. On the right are 6 card pockets & one large pocket behind them. Another thought is that you'll need a heavy duty needle for this project. It was pretty difficult to go through several layers & my machine didn't like that much!
I used a magnetic snap for the closure...LOVE them!!! I wasn't sure if my daughter would like the wallet, but I thought there might be a chance since it has lots of fun prints & bright colors, which she does love. She absolutely loves it!
I have several other projects to share with you that I made for Christmas or other projects. So stay tuned!
