Well done, 8/30/2014
Reviewer: Janean lee (Fishers, In, Usa)
Overall well done. I used pellon 70 for the sew in interfacing and it was too heavy and stiff. Will have to make again with different stiffener. Would have been very helpful to have instructions refer to pattern piece by number for quick reference. Also helpful to have note on large piece that had to be joined to extension. I had forgotten to tape it together when I cut it out and days went by before I made it so I messed that up. If not for my mistakes, it would have gone better. Really like pattern and was just what I wanted to replace one I have had for years.
Pros and Cons on Have it All Wallet, 8/19/2014
Reviewer: Pauline Carpenter (Toronto, Ontario, , Canada)
Pros. The pattern and instructions were excellent and I had no problem following them. The wallet design is very good also and I am very pleased with the final results. Con - for me I find that the closing flap is not deep enough as my wallet contents make it quite thick and heavy - when I make another one, I will make this flap deeper to meet my requirements. I have sewn elastic onto the flap so that it goes around the wallet and keeps the contents secure. Not a big deal but I would prefer not to have to do this.

I made this for my MIL last Christmas and embroidered her initial on the back. It seems like a very complex pattern but the instructions are extremely well-written and the photos are very helpful. If you take your time and just follow step by step, even a beginner can have a very nice result.
- The first printing of this pattern contained a minor error in Step 1. The first bullet point should call for two strips of interfacing 1" wide x 6 3/4" long (not 6 1/2" long).
