My step-mother has been looking for a wallet to carry her coins and cards for a while. I have been looking for a pattern/tutorial to make her one. She has got quite a stack of cards, about an inch thick. I really love this one, which I first saw in leather. However, I though a zipper would be more useful for a coin pocket. Then I saw this one by Siam Square. I think it is perfect for her needs. But, I didn’t find any pattern/tutorial. I have been thinking of figuring things out until I saw this pattern by Michelle Patterns. It is a zip pocket pouch which comes in 3 sizes. It was in sale about two weeks ago for Michelle’s 5$ Friday. When I saw this post, I bought it right away and made one in the next week. It came with a bonus pattern for a phone pouch. It is an additional size with a flap of a different shape.
I made the small size combined with the shape of the flap on the phone pouch and this is what I came up with:
It was the first time I was using one of the Michelle Patterns. I thought the instructions were easy follow with clear pictures and the pouch construction was clever.
My step-mother was quite happy to receive it this card/coin wallet. And I think I might do another one for me to put my business cards and the ones of our guild (Montreal Modern Quilt Guild).
