The Wanderer Wallet is a small, elegant and slimline wallet designed to hold cards, coins, and notes in a neat package. The three different designs allow you to have a bit of fun with them. And it’s also an ideal project to sew for your guy.
This wallet is actually perfect for those that prefer a smaller wallet to tuck into their pocket, or who like to just carry a small bag with the essentials, without carrying a full large wallet. This pattern is fast and easy, and the designer is convinced that once all your friends and family see yours that they’ll be asking you for one!
These make a great stocking stuffer idea too so grab the pattern now and start sewing them up for the festive season. Ideal for special occasions and last-minute birthdays you had forgotten about. Pop in a gift card and you’re done! Phew.
Features of the Wanderer Wallet:-
- It comes with three different flap/coin designs.
- It holds six credit cards, plus bills.
- It has a cool coin pocket.
- It is only 4″ by 4½”. and it is thin! The designer’s man loves it!
- It does not require a lot of fabric.
- The only hardware is two snaps! (Finally, a reason to dig out that Kam snap!).
- There are no zippers!
The Wanderer Wallet is designed to be sewn with non-fraying fabrics such as cork, Kraft-Tex, or thin vinyl. But don’t worry, there’s a fabric version too.
As all of us have supplies of pretty pieces of cotton, the designer has also included instructions for sewing with cotton, However, please be warned that the card slots have raw edges! They are fused with fusible webbing to reduce fraying, but they are raw. If you don’t like raw edges, then sewing this pattern in cotton is not for you. Or make the card slots with non-fraying materials such as Kraft Tex, vinyl, cork or even felt!
