Organizer Wallet

Added Jan 20, 2009

by erdronen

Cincinnati, Ohio...






A wallet for my sister (to match her purse). I created a tutorial for this. Sorry, I did not attach a velcro pocket to the outside, but it’s not that difficult. Whenever I make one for myself, I will update my blog with that portion of the tutorial.


  • snap tab closure
  • 6 credit card slots
  • zippered pocket
  • 2 full width inner slip pockets
  • optional: outer zipper pocket

Also, see my blog for a full version of the tutorial.

Material Notes

You will need:

  • 2-3 fabric colors, about 1/2 yard total
  • interfacing, 1/4 yard
  • heavy duty snap, tools, and instructions
  • zipper (I used 7″, but you can always cut it shorter)
  • 2nd zipper if you want an outer zipper pocket
  • zipper foot
  • size 16 needle
  • a cutting mat and ruler make this much easier
