Today we are sharing a pattern for an accessory most of us use on a daily basis - a wallet. Our Affiliate, Swoon, has some bags that I am just absolutely infatuated with, and when they released this wallet pattern early in the year, I may have just squeeled with delight - of course, bags are not actually my forte, so if anyone feels like making me one... anyone...no, ok - I'll find the time eventually!
The Eloise Wallet is a wallet, but so much more. With a traditional tri-fold wallet and a zippered pouch wallet you are getting a huge bang for your buck. Combine them together and you can carry all your shopping needs for a day out on the town. Make just the tri-fold, and you have a sleek wallet to throw in another bag that will keep all your credit cards and cash perfectly organized. Or, make just the zippered pouch and you still have card slots, cash slots, an inner zippered section for your phone/change/or makeup - all zipped up into one unit that isn't going to spill all over your already cluttered diaper bag.... oh wait, that may just be me.
This pattern includes 6 pages of printed pattern pieces in B&W along with detailed cutting instructions for the additional 5 rectangular pieces. There are clear fabric guides, cutting diagrams, and instructions for using interfacing. Swoon patterns have clear diagrams with detailed written instructions to guide you through the creation of your own wallet.
