Quick Little Wallet

Need a last minute quick gift? These quick little wallets make great stocking stuffer! Add a gift card inside and have a complete gift that is sure to bring a smile!

You can use some scrap fabric or some fat quarters. Here are the dimensions you need.

The cover measures 8" x 6", largest pocket 4.5" x 6", middle pocket 4.25" x 6, bottom pocket 3.75" x 6".  You will also need a piece of fusible interfacing that measures 8" x 6" and some snaps.

So here we go...

I cut a template out of template plastic. After you make one, you'll want to just whip them out! You can't make just one.

Once you get your fabric and interfacing all cut out you will need to fuse the interfacing to the largest piece. This will create your outer part of the wallet. You should have two pieces of fabric for each part of the wallet.

Then you you need to sew the top of each of the pockets. Then press them.

Do this for each of the three pockets. Then you will layer each pocket on top of the largest piece that you fused your interfacing to.

Be sure to line up all your pockets so that the bottoms are all even. Once you have everything layered you will place the other large piece right sides together on top of your layered bunch. Stitch them all together leaving an opening on the side to turn your wallet out.

Once you get them all sewn together using 1/4 inch seam, trim the corners so you can poke them out to get a nicely finished edge.

Lastly press your wallet and then top stitch the top of the wallet. Add your snaps and you're done. If you'd like to use riveted snaps you'll want to attach them before your sew your pocket sandwich together.

Aren't they cute? Great last minute gift! Happy stitching and may your bobbins always be full!
