This week I made a little wallet that is perfect for grownups for your gift and loyalty cards, or for a little kid as their first wallet. I love this little thing, it’s so cute and easy to make. I found a tutorial for it on A Spoonful of Sugar’s blog, so cute and fun!
2 Fat quarters (or a bunch of scraps)
Some fusible interfacing
A hair tie
Step 1: Cut out your pieces.
1st Pocket: 8.25″ x 4″ (from Fat Quarter A)
2nd Pocket: 8.25″ x 4″ (from Fat Quarter B)
Fusible Interfacing: 2 pieces 8.25″ x 4″
Scrappy Oustide: Cut a bunch of 1″ x 4″ and 2″ x 4″ pieces (From Fat Quarter A and B)
Lining: 8.25″ x 4″ (or you can make it scrappy like I did and do the same thing that you do for the Scrappy Outside.)
To make the scrappy outside piece, just sew together a bunch of your little 1″x4″ and 2″x4″ pieces you cut out until they make a strip that is at least 8 1/4″ long. If it’s too long, just trim it so it’s the right size.
Step 2: Iron on your fusible interfacing the back of your lining piece and your scrappy outside piece.
Step 3: Take your two pocket pieces and fold them in half hot dog style, right sides facing out, and iron.
Step 4: Take your lining piece and lay it out right side up. Pin your first pocket piece so that the bottom edge of it is 1″ from the bottom of the lining piece. Sew in place.
Step 5: Find the center of your wallet and sew three lines down the center. This makes your two sides.
Step 6: Take your hair tie and position it right above the lower pocket and stitch in place. Make sure you go back and forth a few times so that it’s secure.
Step 7: Take your scrappy outside and pin it to your lining and pocket piece right sides together.
Step 8: Turn your wallet right side out! Aww, so cute. Poke out the corners with something semi-pointy.
Enjoy making like a million of these!
