A few weeks ago I noticed that my husband’s wallet was starting to fall apart in a few places. I thought it would be fun to try sewing a new one for his birthday. I’d noted this great wallet by Cheri at You & Mie but needed a little more direction with sizing, etc. I then found this wallet tutorial from Anna at Noodlehead. I’ve used a bag and basket pattern from her in the past. She does such a great job with her explanations and her construction methods are quite clever. I ended up altering the inside pockets to be more like Cheri’s design as it better matched my husband’s current wallet.
Modifications: Altering the card pockets
I figured this was a trial run and I can whip up another one of these once I know what changes to make. Since it’s a pattern for a boy’s wallet I probably should have made it a bit bigger. But it was a fun project for my fabulous husband, the best guy around and such a fabulous father to these two crazy kids of ours.
