Being able to make your own accessories is a big perk to living the DIY lifestyle. There are tons of really cool wallets to make out there
, some more difficult than others.
I found a neat tutorial on Craftster
, and the tutorial author is definitely correct in the title, Easy Peasy Snap Wallets
, as this is probably the easiest wallet I have ever made! I can't wait to make a ton more of these, for myself and gifts for my friends.
I have quite a few remnants of funky fabric and interfacing laying about, so that comes in handy for this project. You will only need two pieces of coordinating fabric that are about 9" x 6" or so. You can use whatever size fabric you want, but think ahead about what you would like to put inside the wallet, and that will give you an idea on how small or large you need your wallet to be.
Also, there's something else to consider when choosing your fabric. Keep in mind that this project only requires two pieces of fabric. If the pattern on your fabric only runs a certain way, the design on some of the areas of your finished wallet will be upside down, depending on how you look at it. If this doesn't bother you (and it doesn't bother me) then it really doesn't matter.
So, gather up some fabric, interfacing, snap parts or velcro, thread, and your handy sewing machine and in about twenty to thirty minutes time you have got yourself a new wallet!
