Free Pattern Friday! Kitty Wallet

Hi everyone!
While I was revamping my old Kitty Purse pattern I thought it might be fun to make a matching wallet to go with it! It’s got the same cute simple kitty ear silhouette with appliqued whiskers that made the original purse so popular.

The inside of the wallet has slots for bills/receipts, 6 credit card pockets, and a pouch built in that’s big enough to hold your phone. But my favorite part is the zipper pouch hidden beneath the ears. It’s perfect for holding coins but also big enough to hold pens and pencils if that’s more your thing.
It goes perfectly with the Kitty Purse, but of course you could add a strap and make it a clutch as well. If you’re revisiting my old Kitty Purse pattern, maybe you’ll give this pattern a look too 😀 I hope you all like it!

Free Pattern Friday! Zippered Sketch Wallet

Prj080

My boyfriend recently got a sketch wallet for himself — in leather no less — to hold just a few sketching essentials. Namely a Moleskine and a pencil and pen. Sometimes if the mood suits him he’ll throw in his ID and a few important credit cards so he can completely sustain himself on this wallet alone. Needless to say, I got super jealous and wanted one for myself. It gave me an opportunity try out installing a zipper in the cleanest way possible. This zipper is sewn right into the side seam of the wallet, sandwiched between the outer fabric and the lining. There are no raw edges or seams to bind, so it makes for a clean finish even if it does take some coordination to put together 🙂

When it’s all done you have a wallet for sliding in a sketchbook on one side and pens and pencils on the other! I’m going to try carrying this around myself and see how it works out for me — hopefully I’ll start sketching more!

Freebie Friday! Tri-fold Wallet

Prj065

This project came about because I realized I could probably use a new wallet. I’m not exactly sure what kind will work out best for me, so I’m trying out some different shapes. This particular one has a lot of the basic features: loads of pockets for cards, a slot for bills, and a pocket in the back for coins. I’ll have to see how it handles carrying my things. But if it doesn’t work out for me, maybe it will for you! I love that it gave me a chance to show off some of my large print fabrics because the whole wallet is basically one big sheet. The lining is made from polyester lining to deplete my stash, though it was a bit of hassle to work with so I’d probably recommend sticking with a thin cotton if you’ve got it.
