About: hi i enjoy making ludicrisly over the top and complex devices.... Being an ameture engineer, I refuse pick the easy option, but rather the one that seems best, which inevitably devolves into a weekend of ha...

the one seam wallet is a attractive option for those who hate their pockets cluttered by the everyday requisite collection cards and cash.

Step 1: Choosing Your Leather

for this to come out the best, you will need to choose a relatively thin piece of leather, it also needs to be something you really like, as this wallet is very durable and it will be with you for a long time.

Step 2: Getting the Leather Laser Cut

you'll need the provided pattern to be able to get this wallet cut out in the correct proportions, its just a svg so you can use it in illustrator or inkscape with no trouble at all. alternatively, if your patient and do not have access to a laser cutter, you can use this as a template with a sharp knife to get the pattern cut out

Step 3: Stitching

finally stitch your wallet together using gut cord and a big needle. start by folding the small flap on top of the wallets main body over and then the bottom flap over the top (see pic) and finish the stitch off with a simple knot.

Step 4: Caring for Your Wallet

over time your wallet will absorb the oil from your skin giving it a nice looking finish, basically the longer you use it, the better looking it becomes, simply clean it with a damp cloth if you have to , most chemicals will fudge the process of naturally letting it take on a color from just using it daily. shout out to Tandy leather of salt lake city ut for their advice on stitching leather.

I just cut one out but my leather piece is a bit thick, 4/5oz. Still need to stain it and punch the holes and stain. I'll post pics when its done. I added an image too.

I second this.

I love my slim wallet and this would be a good alternative when my current one gives up the ghost.

Nice looking wallet. I really like the simplicity of the design (both making and use). I'm going to have to make one
