Several friends of mine wanted to learn to make these linen wallets, but since I’ve never taken notes while making things, I had forgotten how to make them. Duh! So I made another wallet to remind myself back, taking proper notes this time. This one is pretty much the same as my previous wallet, the same fabric with velcro closure on the tab.
While I was at it, I also made a little wallet for my Suica (transportation fare card) and all my point cards. Almost every store here has some sort of point cards that gives you discount or bonus. In time, I’ve managed to acquire quite a bunch of them, crammed into my poor wallet. Now they have their own case, made from IKEA fabric and closed with elastic and a red vintage button. The red button is so pretty!
Yeah, now I have 3 more wallets and one small wallet. But anyway, I considered myself pretty succeeded in teaching. My friends were afraid of sewing zipper and they thought these wallets were difficult. After the sewing session, each of them have their own handmade wallet, and one is crazily sewing zipper on everything she makes now!
