Wallet tutorial

Wallet tutorial
Here’s the tutorial for these wallets!

The tutorial includes two variation of the closure, one with tab and velcro and the other with fabric loop and button.

For the tutorial, I made a pair of wallets from pink Japanese cotton fabrics, one in polkadot and the other one in floral pattern. The beige linings are Indian cotton fabrics. I hope the colours of the fabrics are not too muted in the pictures.

The tutorial can be downloaded below, it’s a 7 pages of PDF file. Please contact me if you have any difficulty downloading it, or if anything is not clear.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial and make your own version. Instead of velcro or fabric loop, you can also use snap-on button, magnetic closure, or plain elastics without the fabric loop.

Disclaimer: You may use the finished products for both personal and commercial use (craft shops or markets only – no mass production). Please do not pass off the pattern and tutorial as your own. Thank you!

    I love the pattern but only 4 pages come up for the pdf download. It seems to be missing most of the instructions. Help!

      Hi Alexis!
      You have to click the download button at the top of the window –> Download (1.5 mb) to get the whole file that you can print. The 4 pages is just for preview. Hope that helps!

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. I made this over the weekend and I was very happy with the results. I modified it slightly as I wanted to fit two passports inside and use it as a travel wallet.

    Thank you again! =)

    I had bookmarked your other wallet tutorial to make the other day and then saw the bigger wallets and thought, hmm I would really like to try and make one of those too but she hasn't done a tutorial for those.

    So I tried to make my own version.. didn't get as far as making it so thank goodness you put up your tutorial or I could of wasted alot of time and me getting stressed out when it went wrong! lol.
