The material is a little heavy for a tie but It has the look and feel of the suede coat.
I wanted a full size wallet, not just a tiny hidden pocket.
The suede material makes it incredibly hard to tie a proper knot!
The wallet feature is completely hidden from view and no one even knows that it is there!
Step 1: Materials
You will need a sewing machine, thread and some tracing paper.
I used a heavy suede looking upholstery material and Royal Blue coat lining. A lighter satin type material would be a better choice for a tie.
Step 2: Make a pattern
The tie was then removed and the outline was cleaned up with a straight edge.
A center line was drawn down the entire length of the tie.
All of the angles were marked as shown.
The tie drawing was then measured from center line to edge and the main drawing was increased in width on both sides by this measurement.
Another 1/2 inch was added around the entire perimeter of the the drawing.
This pattern in for the main tie.
The lower part of the drawing was copied once and the center box section of the lower drawing was copied twice and enlarged by a 1/2 inch.
Step 3: Cut the materials
I used a steam iron to fold the materials and add visual reference points as to where things need to sewn together.
I also used a straight edge to get perfect lines.
The inner wallet portion was folded and ironed so that the shiny side would be visible when the tie was opened.
