BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Download pattern template. Prepare the main fabric by attaching fusible fleece. Each brand is different so be sure to follow manufactures instructions.

  3. Sandwich the main fabric and lining with right sides together. Pin in place.
  4. Starting 1″ away from the bottom corner of wallet, straight stitch all around to the other side. Leave a 2″ – 2 1/2″ opening for turning. Clip corners.
  5. Turn wallet right side out and press. Push out corners as needed to create a straight lined corner.
  6. Fold under the seam allowance at opening and edge stitch closed.
  7. Flip up the bottom straight edge of wallet to match the fold line on pattern. (Approximately 3″.) Pin sides in place and all around straight stitch 1/4″ from edge.

  1. So cute! I can’t wait to make one. Or several LOL! I just had one suggestion – on the diagram it says “wrong sides together” but it should say “right sides together”. Thank you for making this awesome tutorial!!!

    • Great catch Maria! I will update the image and send Sara a copy for her to fix in the post. Human error!
