The Allegra Wallet is an elegant wallet with a place for everything. The pattern can be made with a metal frame or with a zipper instead so there are two different styles you can sew within the same pattern.
If you have easy access to purse hardware (ordering from Etsy for example) then this wallet looks so beautiful with a purse frame. But if you want to keep the cost a bit lower or hardware isn’t so easy to find where you are, its equally cute and practical with the regular zipper opening too.
It’s available in two sizes. The large size has twelve card slots and the small has five card slots. Both have a zipper change pocket and two other pockets for cash or other long items such as notes or receipts. The large size has an optional phone compartment and shoulder strap as well for shopping hands-free.
This unique and stylish wallet will hold everything you need!
