Wallet Free Sewing Pattern and Tutorial

I love giving this wallet as a gift for someone paired with their favorite gift card. I can always find a scrap big enough to make another one. It is appropriate for quilting fabric, fat quarters, light weight home dec fabrics as well at many other light to medium weight woven fabrics. The batting used here was cotton quilt batting but any other light batting will work. If you don’t have batting or want another look you could also interface the main piece instead.  This project is for someone with a little sewing experience.

Tools:

sewing machine

pins

scissors

Snap pliers (optional)

Material:

2 -1/4 yard fabric or remnant

zipper

snap

remnant of batting (light weight)

tiny piece of ribbon

Place the other half of snap set on flap.
It’s ready to use.

I like to feed a scrap of ribbon through the hole in the zipper to make it easyer to pull as well as adding a decorative detail.
