This Classic wallet is the long-awaited accordion-style full zip around wallet that has been perfected by me over the years to help everyone master the construction of the perfect zipper installation. No need for the use of a center block or that awkward stitching of the zipper on the curve. My methods make it easy to get the perfect zipper. This wallet is also a great way to use up some of those small pieces of fabric, vinyl or leather.

This wallet features a semi-structured exterior that is suitable for cotton decorator fabrics, lightweight vinyl, and leathers.

The features of this wallet include: 12 credit card slot pockets, 2 bill pockets, 2 open pocket areas for receipts as well as a full depth center zippered pouch. This wallet has a high-end designer look with professional finishing touches. This wallet will hold a cell phone ONLY when the interior zipper pocket is empty, and not full of coins.

Cell Phone Pouch addition to hold your phone either as part of the main wallet or a separate handy wristlet.>

I love this wallet!

I really enjoyed making this wallet with vinyl outer and quilting cotton inner. However my Janome P6700 did struggle when attaching the inner to the outer and I am currently bidding on a stronger machine!! 😀 I am though very happy with my make. I used the Kraf Tex and Decovil light for the first time and loved them. Will have to find a supplier for more of these. I think I paid too much!

Classic Zip Around Wallet

Very excited about this pattern. Totally doable on a domestic machine. Lots of pieces, so go slow and make sure to lable every piece. Curves can be tricky, go slowly and they will turn out perfect. Just take it a step at a time and don't rush or skip steps. My first time with a zip around wallet. Love knowing everything is safe and secure.
