    I found an old wallet at Goodwill that I liked....but it wasn't in a good condition...bought it for a $1.00 and brought it home to experiement. Here's my result. It has a zippered pocket for coins, a slot for dollar bills, credit card area, and a slot for coupons/receipts. Plus I made an extra card holder for all those "savings cards" that you get at the stores nowadays. What do ya think???? :mrgreen:

    Well you are one clever girl to have bought that great pattern for a buck. I love the black and white fabric that you used it really makes that wallet cool.
    Nice Job!

    I like it. I was trying to come up with a pattern to hold all the extra cards from the stores. May try to copy yours (if you don't mind)

    Don't mind at all!!! The one for the cards from the store is easy.

    10" x 6"...2 pieces of fabric
    10" x 6"... 1 piece of Heavyweight interfacing - iron onto one piece of fabric
    Sew both pieces of fabric together, turn right side out, press, and sew 1/4" from edge (top stitch)
    Sew a 2 1/4" piece of velcro to one side on the end (bottom - not flap end) (about 1/4" from edge)
    fold up bottom piece 2 3/4" up. Press, sew 1/4" from both side edges.
    Fold down flap and press.

    VOILA!

    You did a great job and I like the fabric you chose. It's interesting to see what you all sew/create aside from quilts. Thanks for posting it.

    That is a wonderful wallet! I would love to give it a go! I keep saying I'm going to make a wallet but can never find just the right one - looks like you already found it!!
