|3-fold kiddie wallet|
|Andi checking out the contents of her new wallet.|
You will need:
- Felt in different colors (for a colorful wallet, I used 3 colors for mine)
- sewing machine (or needle and thread)
- Buttons, ribbons, fabric flowers... anything you want to use to decorate your wallet.
Length of section A is equal to the length of the paper money plus 3/4 inch allowance to the left and right. Section B is roughly 1/3 the length of section A (this requires a little Math, sorry!)
Width of both sections is equal to the length of your credit card plus 3/4 inch allowance at the top and at the bottom.
Step 3: Cut another piece of felt in another color equal to the size of Section A.
Step 4. Cut smaller pieces of felt to be used as inside pockets. You decide how many pockets you want and what kind of pockets they have to be. I decided to put in 2 pockets for cards on mine, and a pocket to display photos.
Step 5. Sew the pockets on to piece of felt you cut from Step 3. Note that this piece will soon be folded in half so make sure you leave room at the center for the fold. Here's a simple diagram of how mine looks like with the pockets:
Step 6. Next, sew the piece you cut from Step 1 to the piece with the pockets. Sew on 3 sides only, see diagram below. Sew along the dotted lines. Leave the top open. This will be opening for the bills.
Step 7: Decorate! I was too tired last night because it was late so I only sewed in a button at the flap. I'll make a more fabulous one next time
Step 8. Attach the Velcro.
And you are done! Then I cut a picture of her to put on the photo pocket. And cut out little cards and "play money" (colorful pieces of paper from a toy catalog we got at the mall).
