Description

I love how this wallet isn’t too large, yet it’s roomy enough for all the necessities one might need. There are slots for eight cards, two slip pockets for cash, and even a super handy zipper compartment. Plus a closure tab, of course.

Essex wallet features:
zippered coin area
8 card slots
closure tab

Please note, this is a MEASURE AND CUT PATTERN meaning all pattern pieces are cut using cutting mat, rotary cutter, and ruler. No printed templates are needed to make this pouch.

Sizing info:
DIMENSIONS: 5.5” tall x 4” wide when closed

Skill level:
I graded this pattern as intermediate as it requires quite a bit of precision in measuring and sewing, but I think an adventurous, committed beginner would be able to sew it up as well
 
The pattern:
You will receive 11 pages of clear, easy to follow step by step instructions and clear color photos to make this super handy wallet.Materials needed:
1 FE (fat eighth) of fabric measures 9” x 21”
FABRIC A (main panels + closure tab) – 1 FE
FABRIC B* (lining + card pockets) – 1/2 yard
SF101 INTERFACING (or other medium weight fusible interfacing of choice or fusible fleece) – 1/2 yard
one (1) – 5” metal or nylon ZIPPER
one (1) – size 12 HEAVY DUTY SNAP (you can use a different snap if preferred)
one (1) – ZIPPER PULL (optional)

*I recommend using non-directional print for the lining and pockets to be able to cut your pockets in one continuous length. If, however, you choose to go with directional print you will need to piece your pocket panels using two separate strips of fabric (dimensions provided in cutting directions).
