We’d like to introduce you to the Pocket Pal’s big sister, the Purse Pal. This is the Purse Pal Slim Wallet pdf sewing pattern from the designer Linds Handmade.

The Purse Pal Slim Wallet has six recessed card slots, with a closure tab to keep them secure, a long slip pocket and a lined zippered main compartment.

This pattern is designed to be used with any self healing material such as cork, leather, vinyl etc as the edges are left raw (with the option of using edge paint to finish off the edges.) The designer says you should not try making with cotton fabric!

The designer says her Purse Pal Slim Wallet is a beginner friendly pattern, but you should be comfortable with inserting zippers, and cutting and sewing accurately which will make all the difference in the overall end look since the edges are left raw. She goes onto saying that if you’ve never sewn with cork, vinyl or leather before, you should read the “Tips & Tidbits” section carefully where she shares her tips for sewing with these materials.

When you have finished making your very own Purse Pal Slim Wallet it will measure approximately 4” wide by 7” tall.

Besides producing written instructions the designer has also produced a 33-minute video tutorial showing you how to make her Purse Pal Slim Wallet that you can watch below:-
