I am not able to sew so this lace wallet is completely made with glue and anybody can do it!
It is pretty easy to make and it would be perfect as a Valentine's Day gift for your girlfriend/wife! :)

Step 1: What you need

  • white cloth
  • black lace
  • wadding
  • velcro
  • super glue
  • hot glue
  • scissors
  • button

Step 2:

Take your piece of white cloth and cut a 12x30cm rectangle (4.72 x 11.81 inches).
Do the same with your piece of lace.

Put the lace you have just cut on the cloth rectangle and glue the sides together with super glue.

Step 3:

Now turn it upside down (white part on the front) and put a thin layer of wadding on it (about 5mm thick - 0.19 inches) leaving about 1 cm (0.39 inches) from each side free.

Trim corners to reduce bulk and fold all 4 sides creating a "frame" around the wadding. Glue with hot glue.

Put it aside for a minute. Meanwhile cut a 9x27cm (3.54 x 10.62 inches) rectangle out of the white cloth.

Glue this new rectangle on the frame around the wadding using hot glue to close it.

The base of your wallet is done! Now it's time to make pockets!

Step 4:

Cut two rectangles 11x29cm (4.33 x 11.41 inches): one from the white cloth and one from the lace.

Put the lace on the cloth and glue the sides together with super glue, just like you did previously.

Trim all 4 corners.

Step 5:

Turn it upside down with the white side on the front.
Fold one of the longest sides (about 1cm - 0.39 inches) and glue it with hot glue. This will be the opening side of the pocket at the top.

Now fold and glue the remaining sides to the wallet. Glue the bottom first, then the 2 sides. Remember that the white part must be the inside of the pocket. (Take a look at the pictures, it's much easier to understand that way!)
This is sooo pretty! voted for you! best of luck :)

I like your design.
I can see by "cut the edges", you mean "trim corners to reduce bulk" ; by "bend" you mean "fold" (bend hard material like metal sheet, fold soft material like fabric).
You can always sew by hand. The wallet doesn't seem to have long seams. Handsewing won't be terribly tedious.
Thanks for sharing your design.

Verrrrry nice young lady (I'm 60 yr)! As a person who does sew, many of the basic tasks could also quickly be done with a few straight stitches. I could also see this as a very nice gift for bridesmaids--- white lace over their favorite color? Extremely well pictured and written Instructable also. Thank YOU!

Oh thank you, this means so much to me! Since English is not my first language, the writing part is always the hardest one and I hope I make myself clear :)
Very cute wallet! I'm not sure if I've heard of wadding before, what is it?
lindarose92 (author)  Penolopy Bulnick1 year ago
Good question! I didn't know the word for it in English so I googled it and I got wadding as result...it's something soft used to fill chair seats, pillows, anything soft...do you know a better word for it so that everybody understands?
That sounds like it is probably the right word, I'm just getting into sewing, so I'm still not good with everything people use :)

Oh ok, I can't sew at all but my father was an upholsterer so I still have some of the materials he used :D
