12 Pocket Travel Wallet sewing pattern

This wallet was developed to easily carry maps, cards, tickets, etc. while taking a flight, touring theme parks, or on a road trip.

As you can see in the photos it does carry all the necessary items and even holds the locker key from your locker rental inside the park.

It is worn over the shoulder for comfort and to keep it handy. Another option is to wear it around the neck, or sew a longer narrow strap, perhaps make it adjustable, and wear it as a crossbody bag.

Although developed specifically for theme parks, it is a great travel wallet for anyone traveling. You can keep all of your important documents in the twelve pockets! Plenty of room for all the tickets and passports for the whole family.
