    Hi,

    I used to have a tutorial for a wallet where you cut one long piece of fabric, make a few folds, then sew down each side, leaving one end open....you turn the wallet through that opening and the hole sits inside one of the pockets.

    I don't know if I've explained it enough for anyone to perhaps recognise the tutorial and can steer me in the right direction....fingers crossed though!

    Hugs
    Naomi

    I hope so too! If I could find the example one I made up again, I could possibly do a mini tute on it, but if you knew how many hidey holes I have around here....it will be easier to see if someone else knows of a tutorial...lol

    There is a free pattern here <http://studiokatdesigns.com/freepatterns.htm>. I have made the long Kash Keeper and really like it. I did make it a little longer so it is easier to put bills in. If I make another one, I'll also add a strip of fabric over the credit card slots to keep them in place. I haven't had any problem with cards falling out, but others have. I would make the strip with velcro at the bottom and sewn in at the top.

    Thank you for this great pattern. I just made a purse insert and did not like the pocket for paper money. Will try this wallet pattern.
