Cotton Wallets

I've been playing with the idea of making wallets. After searching the web for ideas, I came up with a design that would incorporate what I needed- a place for cards, currency and my checkbook. When I go back to the drafting board, I will perhaps include a zippered pocket for change and a loop for a pen.

My concept includes using a section of fabric and making accordian type pleats to create the interior pockets. It is so much easier than cutting out individual pieces and it takes away from the bulk in the seams.

The finished width is about 7-3/4" total. The 6 card pockets are actually large enough to hold 2-3 cards each. The 2 pockets on the opposite side are roomy enough to include receipts if needed.

Want to know te greatest part? This type of project using up your scraps! You can have a cute print on the outside, and your interior can be a coordinating print or a matching solid.

This pattern is for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in making their own :-)
