Mini Wallet Tutorial

Here’s a fun little project that you can make in less than an hour. This mini wallet has two pockets to hold cards and cash. It makes a great little present and you can use up your scrap fabric!

What you’ll need:

- 7” x 6” piece of fusible interfacing (medium weight)
- fabric scraps
- This printable papertemplate
- a snap

How to make your wallet:

1. Select what scrap fabric you want to use.

2.Print the template PDF, making sure on your printer settings that it is not ‘scaled to fit’. Cut out your template pieces (3 pieces).

3. Cut your fabric: 2 main body fabric pieces, 1 main body piece out of interfacing, and 2 fabric pieces of each pocket. I chose to have different colours for either side of the main body piece and matching fabrics for the two sides of each pocket.

4. Fuse the interfacing onto the wrong side of the piece you choose for the inside main body of the wallet.

5. With right sides together, sew the 2 pieces of pocket 1 along the top. Do the same for pocket 2. Press them both open, then fold them and press, right sides out. 

6. Lay the inside main body piece down, right side up and lay both pockets on top, as shown. Lay the outside main body piece on top, right sides together and sew along the outside edge all the way around, leaving a small 2” section open.

 

 

7. Trim the corners.

8. Turn right side out, through 2” gap in the seam.

9. Push out the corners, iron the edges flat, and then top stitch 1/8” from the edge all the way around.

 

10. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, attach the snap  on the outside of pocket 1 (make sure you just go through the front pocket!!)  and the inside of the main body piece. I used a sew-on snap, so I chose a gold button to sew on the outside.

 

  

And there you have it! An easy-peasy mini wallet!
