When I travel, I always have tons of paperwork – boarding passes, itineraries, passports, visa documents – and I wanted to upgrade from the black velcro (loud) travel wallet I bought five years ago.

This wallet has a zippered compartment for foreign currency, three card pockets and a concertina section with four compartments for documents to keep myself organised.

Material Notes

Main fabric – Home decorating wright cotton twill (Amy Butler)
Accent fabric – quilting weight cotton
Light weight fusible interfacing and Peltex 70 were used to add structure.

    This is so elegant and practical – excellent work! I need a great travel wallet too, and this is a wonderful inspiration to get going on sewing one.

      I made my own pattern, after looking at some expensive leather travel wallets for inspiration. I will upload it on BurdaStyle, as soon as I find the time to write it up properly.

      That would be superb. Take your time. I know how hard it is to write it down properly ;-).
