    The local fly fishing club my family and I belong to is having its annual fundraising auction this month. I decided to make leader wallets (for storing your spare fishing leader in) to donate to the auction. Of course I had to make some pink ones for the ladies in the audience. It works great, keeps the men out of your stuff! :wink:

    Yes, for putting spare fishing leaders in. Each wallet has 12 pockets and of course one may store more than one leader in each pocket.

    Those are really nice and how cool is it that the same pattern can be manly or pretty!

    I think I am either going to need to get your pattern or pay you to make me one. Let me know how much! I think that would be a great fathers day gift for my fish-oaholic husband. :lol:

    They aren't difficult, I made these 4"X12". The vinyl pockets are 3.75" X 12", then folded in half. I used timtex to stiffen them, and quilted the fabric to keep it all together. The binding is ultra suede.

    How are the pockets made? This is something I could try for the numerous fishermen in my family! Thanks for sharing.

    The pockets are made by cutting a strip of vinyl 3.75"X12". Fold to center. Stitch along the sides, using a 1/4" s.a. Then, I stacked 3 together (giving 6 pockets, 12 all together) and stitching down the middle of those to secure them to the wallet.

    Very clever. I think I will make one for my son in law to go with a fishing licience, his annual birthday present.

    I even put a license holder inside, just for that purpose. It's sewn in between the two sets of sleeves, sewn on three sides so you can slide the license into it.

    Timtex is a very stiff "interfacing" (for lack of a better word) and can be found at a local quilting store. It is much like a very heavy weight pellon interfacing, used for stiffening the fabric bowls you may or may not have seen.
