Made the wallet in a couple of hours. Instructions clear and easy to follow. I did trace the pattern pieces rather than cut up the original. Also used a strip of touch-and-close tape rather than the snap fastener and it works very well. Only slight drawback is that if you're getting coins out then unless you're careful your cards are upside down and at risk of falling out. Will modify pattern if I make another one.
Best Wallet Ever!, 4/17/2015
This pattern is fantastic! The instructions are super easy to follow with great diagrams for nearly every step. The pattern itself is so clever! I have made probably half a dozen different wallets before, and this by far is my favorite pattern.

This is a great pattern that sews up elegantly and comes together pretty quick. It could be improved by simply listing all the various sizes of rectangles that need to be cut instead of having to cut out template pieces. I found myself doing that anyway before I began. I also increased the width of the pieces by 1/2 inch all around as the card pockets were a little too snug for me.

I have made 7 of the wallet and only had to change one thing. I added heavier sew in facing for the back. The original was not thick enough. T am going to try to add another flap for credit cards going the other direction and sewn in under the bottom of the original cc pocket. The directions and pics were very easy to follow and well written. Plan to make more for gifts. Love it!!!!
- 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).
