Introducing the Nickel Wallet

I am so excited to be releasing my first pattern, The Nickel Wallet!  

This project is perfect for using up your scraps of cork, vinyl, leather or even Kraft Tex! You can use any non fraying material for this little gems! There are only two pattern pieces to cut and only two seams! Most of my testers made theirs in under 15 minutes from cutting to finishing!

There is one deeper center pocket perfect for storing your cash and two smaller card slot pockets for your cards and ID. My testers did an amazing job of adding their own flair to them and showing how versatile this quick little project is! 

This would be a great first project for those looking to play with leather or cork for the first time and since it uses scraps you don’t have to worry about getting a large amount to try.

The quick sewing makes them perfect for those who make for craft fairs or markets and make one (or four) up for them boys in your life who always feel like we never make them anything. 

You can download this FREE pattern on Craftsy here.

amazing options she has here.

Wendy of W.D. Handbags made two versions, one in cork and one in this fun printed vinyl. She added an additional line of top stitching at the top and reduced the seam allowance to 1/8" to make it able to hold more cards:
