    nice looking wallet, looks like a lot of pleats for the pockets. good luck and show us it done.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That was interesting. I would like to try that to make a matching wallet when I make a bag. Someday... Thanks for the link.

    I have used the Petite Wallet pattern by Pat-e-Patterns. It is a bifold wallet but actually has two folds. I've made several of them and I really like them.

    This is the wallet I want to make--have the pattern. I want the ID area and the coin pocket. I do plan to make it a little wider so that I can place cards up/down and side-by-side to get more in it.

    Here you go Lynnie. The flowers are the pocket and lining pieces. The red is the outside and tab pieces.

    Outside.

    I need to put in the lining and the snaps yet.
    I don't normally work with interfacing. I am having an issue getting the corners
    to come out good with all the bulk. I did trim back the corners.
