Small Wallet Tutorial

 Mini Card Wallet + Sewing Tutorial + Free Pattern

The purse with dimensions of about 8cm x 10cm absolutely trouser pocket suitable and takes in the purse little space away.
The wallet has 3 card slots, a zipped pocket for coins and a compartment under the coin pocket. The whole thing is closed by a tab with push button.

Sewn, the whole thing really fast and is ideal as a project for the remainder utilization.


 1 x outer fabric 12cm x 19cm
1 x inner fabric 12cm x 19cm
1 x fleece insert 12cm x 19cm (I used H250)
3 x fabric for card slots 12cm x 10cm
1 x fabric for zippered compartment 12tcm x 20cm
1 x fabric for the flap 5cm x 11cm
1x fleece for the tab 5cm x 11cm (also here I used H250)
1 x zipper, 15 cm or longer
1x push button to close


Here we go!
After all fabrics have been cut to size, first the nonwoven is ironed on the left side of the outer fabric and the closure flap.

As the parts cool down, the card slots are prepared:
Fold the fabric pieces lengthwise and iron the edges flat.

 Then stitch once along the closed edge:

 Next, the change pocket is sewn:
For this, the piece of fabric is placed with the right side down on the RV, who likes can stick here a few needles.

 Now sew along the zipper, fold the fabric and iron if necessary, then stitch again.
Do the same on the other side as well. The last seam will be a bit tricky, but with a sufficiently long RV it will not be a problem.


 If everything was turned around, the whole thing should look like this:
 The edges are already ironed. The fabric is approx. 3 cm high at the top, 5 cm at the bottom.

Now the tab is sewn:
Fold the piece of fabric in the middle and iron it.
If you want, you can now mark a curve and sew along the marked lines. If you find a square flap more beautiful, you simply save it and sew along 3 edges so that the opening remains at the bottom.
Then turn, iron again flat and stitch around:

 Now finally the individual parts can be arranged and sewn together.
I have folded the inner fabric once in the middle, ironed and unfolded again. So I marked directly the middle, where I can then orient myself.

Card slots:
The uppermost compartment is placed about 3 cm from the lower edge of the inner fabric and sewed with a tight seam on the lower (open) edge. The middle compartment I have placed about 1 cm from the edge, the bottom is sewn directly to the edge.

 Clasp:
The tab is simply placed in the middle of the bottom of the card slot. With me that is about 4 cm from the right and left edge. If you want, you can secure the position with a short seam or simply stick a needle.

Small change:
I put my coin pocket about 0.5 cm from the middle of the fabric and fixed it with a tight seam on the upper one. It will look like that:

 Now the outer fabric is placed with the right side down, the zipper is opened about halfway and the whole sandwich is put together with a few needles.
Then stitch around every inch of foot width, leaving a turn-around opening.

Cut back the seam allowances a bit and cut corners, then turn them once and make a nice shape. I usually use a pen or a long wooden stick for that.


 Iron everything once again and stitch around all the way round, the turning hole will also be closed.
Who wants to can close the opening by hand with the head stitch and save the stitching, I like it so much better.

 Now only the push button has to be attached. I've used Prym Color Snaps, but everything else works just as well.
One part is attached to the locking tab, the counterpart is placed under the coin pocket. This is a bit fiddly, but doable.
Alternatively, you can attach the push button even before sewing everything together, that should be easier. I'm just worried that in the end the gaps will not be 100% fit and would rather do some fumbling work on me.


 And that's it. Now everything again nicely in shape and finished is the wallet :)
