I made these linen wallets on a friend’s request. At first I tried following a tutorial found on the net, but that ended in disaster. So I made up my own pattern.
The wallet has 4 card slots (I’ve wanted to make 6 card slots but mysteriously ended with 4), a zippered pocket for coins, and 2 long pockets for money. The wallet opens and shuts with heart-shaped velcro sewed on its wide tab. For added structure, the wallet also has iron-on interfacing for added structure.
The result is definitely better than my first (failed) attempt. So I made another one from pink linen with various different pattern on it.
I showed the wallets to my friends over lunch today, and they love it! Now both wallets have gone and I’m just happy that some people like them \(^.^)/
