This fabric wallet was super easy to make, it only took about 2 hours to make. It ended up being a little bigger that i had first planned but turned out great!
It is 8" by 4"
Step 1: Gather supplies
Well, first of all you need to gather supplies, for this project you will need:
-small scraps of different fabrics (including 1 about 1o'' by 10" square scrap)
-7 inch zipper
-button (mine was about 1 1/2")
-tiny piece of quilt batting or felt/thick cloth
-elastic hair tie (thin ones works better)
-clear plastic (I used a zip lock bag)
-thin cardboard (Kleenex box worked great!)
-color coordinated thread
-fusible interfacing (i don't know if it really does anything...but i put it on)
-cutting mat and rotary cutter(you can use scissors, but a rotary cutter is easier)
Step 2: Cover
First of all we make the front cover. To start out find 6 fabric scraps that you like, ( you will want to iron them if they are wrinkly) and cut one 1 1/2 " by 4 " rectangle from each scrap. Figure out how you want them laid out, and then sew them together (1/8 mark on sewing machine) to form a long wallet shape. for the other side cut 10 2"by 2" squares. And cut a 1"by10" strip. sew the squares into 2 strips. Then sew the thin strip between the two square strips. Then iron them. Now find the fusible interfacing and cut a piece for each wallet cover half. Follow the instructions on the interfacing package.
Step 3: Button
Now you will want to sew on the button. grab your button, and thread a needle. Cut your batting/felt so it is just a tiny square to go on the back of the wallet to keep it more secure. Make sure the button is in the middle...then sew it on! Next you can sew the front and back cover together
