Description

Wallet with three folds, lots of card pockets and a note sleeve (no coin pocket as I’m short on zippers and there’s no “running to the store” in Antarctica
Following the tutorial at DarnKat but excluding the quilting fleece stuff (technical term hehe), I used iron on interfacing to make the cotton a little stiffer on the bottom card pockets, but should’ve used it also on the top pocket. You can’t tell but the dark blue material has a fold towards the centre panel to give it a bit more interest.
Great tutorial, so easy to follow! And the wallet actually looks usable yay!

Material Notes

Cotton (fat quarters), fusible interfacing.

    Antartica? Research?

      Sort of, I am running the Weather Observations/ Meteorology program at one of the Australian Stations- not so much research as weather services for the expeditioners and global forecasting models… gives me plenty of time inside when the weather is less than friendly :)
