A wallet is an important accessory for men. It enhances men's personality as well as overall appearance. I like above pattern of making wallet.


Annette Funseth

This is adorable. I can't wait to make one for myself and my daughter!


Great tutorial. Thanks.


I made this tonight. Great tutorial, the only thing I would add is to place straight pins when you're sewing that last part together. the wallet was a lot smaller than it looked in the photos. I definitely needed straight pins to make it all come together in the end. I'll post photos on my blog tomorrow. thanks again!

This is exactly what I've been looking for (or trying to design myself) to hold a tiny MP3 player, with pockets to keep the cords separate! Perfect timing, too, and I'll make one today!

Got your tutorial via the Sew Can She Newsletter. Thanks!


I found this tutorial through SewCanShe and I made one for my niece's belated birthday gift. (Well, except for the snap because I just now discovered that I only have one side of the snaps in my box! UGH!) It turned out pretty cute and I enjoyed your Christmas music playlist while I was working on it! :) Thank you for the great tutorial!!!

Angela Thee

This is a great pattern. I have linked to it on my blog - http://alittlebirdmademe.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/a-list-of-30-free-tutorials-and-patterns-for-wallets-and-pouches/


I just found your blog via Pinterest and am floored by your amazing projects. I just don't know which one to start first! Oh and I love the fabric choices on your totes.


Ok, two things, maybe three :)
Your stuff is darling.
Where do you buy your material I love it!
Three how do I help with the orphan project?


wow....really confusing. sure hope it turns out!

yeah....it didn't....these directions really stink


Diana, I'm sorry your wallet didn't turn out. As I said in the 3rd paragraph of this tutorial, this is not an easy project:
"I feel like I should issue a bit of a warning about this little wallet, though - despite its benign appearance, it's not exactly a project for beginners. Not because of a lot of complicated pieces, but because it's so tiny that it's pretty hard to do a really good job constructing it. Any slight variance in seam allowance or the tiniest error in alignment will result in a glaringly obvious crooked pocket or flap, so be patient and do your very best when stitching it together to avoid problems."
Perhaps the problem lies more in user error than in the instructions that other people have used quite successfully for several years now. And perhaps you could work on your manners a little bit instead of attacking my free tutorial.
