Measures 5” wide x 4.25” tall when closed and 11.5” tall when open and flat.

Great for gifts, fast to sew, and great for scrap busting too.


Outer Fabric can be any woven fabric. You can have a lot of fun with it. I use a stiffener in between the outer and lining but if your fabrics are thick or very stable, you can skip it. I often use a cotton lining that ranges from lawn to quilting cotton or light weight canvas.

The photos show wallets using:

  • Denim outer (houses) and cotton lining with stiffener.
  • Solid is a canvas outer with cotton lining and stiffener,
  • Dogs are a textured cotton sort of like Bark Cloth with a cotton lining and stiffener.
  • The map is a cotton outer and lining with stiffener.

Yardage (You can use small pieces and scraps for all of it):

Outer Fabric: /4 yard
Lining Fabric: 1/4 yard
Stiffener: 1/4 yard (if you don't have stiffener, you can use interfacing or an extra layer of canvas.)



Zipper: 1 @ 5"
3/8" elastic: 9.5"
1.375" wide Bias Binding: 60"
