Clear View ID Key Chain Wallet sewing pattern

This little wallet can be joined to your key chain for the ultimate in convenience.

The wallet has a clear window that allows a card or ID to be seen easily, but unlike most little coin purses or wallets of this type, the ID card is contained within the zippered wallet so you never have to worry about it slipping out and away from you.

Inside you have an additional pocket to keep more cards or paper bills tucked in, and a large center section to hold lipstick, coins, medication, and any small items you would like to have with you when you head out the door. Everything is protected from loss as the top zips closed. Slip it in your pocket easily! It is even large enough for a small flip phone to fit inside. This all makes it the perfect “essentials” wallet.

Allow a couple of hours time for your first wallet, then about an hour for the following ones.
