I love Val Well’s Little Wallet. It’s so handy and I make it often to give as gifts. My friend Julia has seen the Little Wallet that I carry and I suggested she make one for herself.
I precut all the fabric pieces and sewed the little pieces of velcro closures on the wallet ahead of time. First Julia sewed 1/4″ seams all along the outside edge catching the outside fabric, inside fabric and all three pockets from one side to the other leaving the bottom of the purse open. The three pockets are hidden between the layers in the photo above. When she turns the wallet rights out, you’ll see them. Then she clips the corners so they won’t be so bulky when she turns it right side out. Julia turned and pressed her Little Wallet. The smallest front pocket is turned inside out and she sewed a seam across the bottom catching all of the fabric pieces. Then she turned that pocket right side out and hid the seam on the inside, creating a finished edge for the bottom of the purse. (Not sure why she needed three pair of scissors.) Pressing it gives the wallet a clean finished look.
Julia is ready to start using her Little Wallet. It’s great as a business card holder or add a debit card, a little cash, and she’s ready for hands-free shopping! Great job Julia!
