Square Wallet To Go

Filed under: Sewing — xstitcherzo @ 10:20 am

My birthday gift from eldest sis…died on me. It stays faithful for 2 years before its heart give way. So after several days of going to work without wallet. I decided to make one instead.

Not really well done, it could have been way, way, way make much better. I should interface the fabric. Used magnetic snaps. Add more pockets. Placed the zipper section in the middle. In short, I should really, really well-planned when making my square wallet.

This is the front view of the 2SQ wallet. Unknowingly, I stitched the straps onto the outer pocket thus making it un-usable. Silly me. Fabric is your typical Batik sarong that is worn by most Asians women. Due to bad planning, the zippered part ended on the top of wallet.

Inside view of it : Since I did not interface nor add batting….it feels kinda flimsy and drappy when I slot in my cards on bothsides. Note to add….need to add velcro to keep the card from falling off when you try to unzip the top portion for coins.

When closed, it is just 4.5 inch by 4inch. Closed with studs and hidden by buttons.
