Step 1: Cut Pieces
grab the anti-static bag that your CD-ROM burner came in, and cut it into tiny pieces.
9 pieces 2.3" by 4.5"
1 piece 4.5" by 9"
Step 2: First Pocket
tape two pieces together, with their long edges 0.4" apart. Sew them along the opposite edge.
Step 3: Second Pocket
do it again: Another piece, offset by 0.4" along the long edge. Sew along the other edge
Step 4: Third Pocket
do it once more
Step 5: Make the Second Set of Pockets
make another set of pockets, just like the first set
Step 6: Join the Two Sides
Put the two sets of pockets back-to-back, with the last piece of plastic between them. Make sure the last piece sticks out 0.4" along the long edge. Tape the long edges in place.
Now, fold back three pockets on each side, and run a single seam, 0.4" from the left edge as shown.
Step 7: Sides of Pockets
Run two seams from the top down to about the middle of the wallet, on each side, as shown.
These are finish seams, so make sure you do the reverse trick at the ends.
Step 8: Attach Outer Flap
Attach the outer flap by sewing a three-sided seam as shown. This is also a finish seam, so make sure to reverse at both ends.
Also: Be sure not to go too far up near the top of the wallet; if you do, your money pocket will be very tight.
Step 9: Trim
Trim around all your seams. Turn the wallet over and trim the outer flap to your desired shape.
Step 10: Load and Go!
Put your most used cards in the front pockets.
Put your least used cards in the back pockets.
Put your money in the money pocket.
You're all set to go, in lush, slim, silvery, EMI-proof style!
