This is a wallet I made with a self drafted pattern using some cute Alexander Henry Dia de los Muertos themed skull fabric (hence the name). You really can’t tell what the fabric is unless you open the wallet up and look at the back but the pattern is so pretty even just as an abstract design so I still like it.
It has 3 card holder pockets, two money pockets, a zipped coin pocket on the back and a button closure. I trimmed it with some red mini pom pom ribbon (is that what you would call that stuff?) and added a vintage button.
Read the blog post for more pictures and extra notes on how to make the wallet. The pattern download includes instructions but no photos.
