For the last few years, my mom has been using a cheap "wallet" that she found in the attic, even though it doesn't really fit any of her cards or money, and it doesn't have a pocket for change. After trying (and failing) to convince her to get a new one for herself, I decided I should make her one for Mother's Day, and this is what I came up with:
I used pretty blue and white fabric for the outside, and lined it with pink polka-dotted fabric. I put in an inner zipper pocket, two larger inner pockets for bills, six credit card pockets, and two clear card pockets in the front for ID cards. It closes with a snap button tab, and I used pink thread for the top stitching (I thought it looked so cute against the blue!)
I lined the inner pockets with the outer blue fabric, just to make the inside more interesting. I love the way it came out! This was one of my all-time favorite handmade gifts. I completed it in a reasonable amount of time, and it was pretty fun to put together! This could easily be changed around in terms of pocket layout; the possibilities are endless! I can't wait to make some more wallets!
Happy Saturday, everyone! I have some projects planned for the new house this week, so I'll keep you all posted! Have a great weekend!
