Average rating: (4.6 of 5) based on 11 reviewsManageable even for beginnersReviewed by Rebecca (Verified Buyer) on 11/01/2015This is the first pattern I ever bought and the first time I'm sewing something with zippers and interfacing. The instructions were very clear and any part that I couldn't understand on the first reading or first attempt was probably due to my own amateur sewing skills :)Was this helpful?Have It All WalletReviewed by Denise Johnston on 09/04/2015Great pattern easy to understand instructions have made 2 with a few more to go, Christmas gifts!Was this helpful?Great Pattern, Great Wallet!Reviewed by Heidi (Verified Buyer) on 07/11/2015I needed a new wallet and I love Oliver and S so I went for this one also designed by Liesl! I was not disappointed!
It was easy to print and put together with minimal taping of pages. The instructions were fantastic. There is so much space in this wallet with all the pockets and card slots. My previous wallet was over stuff but now it's spread out nicely and I can easily see and find everything :)3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Nice WalletReviewed by Sherril on 07/03/2015Love how mine turned out except that I used soft and stable for the wallet. If you use anything very thick for the main wallet to give it structure, don't forget to reduce the size of the lining because of the turn of the cloth. I am getting a lot of buckling because of that. I remembered to cut away for the length, but forgot about the width. :(Was this helpful?great funReviewed by Helen R on 05/17/2015Made 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.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Have It All WalletReviewed by Angela Tjelmeland on 05/05/2015This pattern is very detailed and flows nicely. I had a little trouble following around step 14, mainly because the pieces are named so similarly. I chose to place my bottom snap prior to sewing the outside wallet pieces together. I did not want it show through the accordian pocket. Placement was difficult. Also, I did not place the top snap low enough on upper lip and it puckers up a bit. I added a driver's license slot to the front of the accordian pocket because that is a feature of current wallets that I really like and would miss on this pattern. I would definately use heavey weight stablizer on the wallet. I used medium/heavy weight fuzable stablizer and it doesn't feel as durable as manufactored wallets. This is the third wallet pattern that I have made and is by far the easiest, most detailed pattern I have used. With a few tweeks, it is easy to perfect and is a nice, useable product.4 of 4 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Best Wallet Ever!Reviewed by Eleanor on 04/17/2015This 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.3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?WalletReviewed by Shelagh Handley on 01/02/2015Really pleased with the finished result.

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.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?have it all walletReviewed by Becky B. on 11/16/2014I 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!!!!Was this helpful?The BEST pattern Ever!!!!Reviewed by Jennifer on 11/05/2014I have recommend these patterns to all my friends. I am using the pattern to make Christmas gifts for my knitting friends and I would highly recommend to others. The pattern is easy to follow, instructions are clear, and the price is very reasonable. I will definitely purchase patterns again. JenniferWas this helpful?
- 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).
- The first and second printings of this pattern contained a minor error in the supplies list. The piece of extra firm woven sew-in interfacing must be 9" x 13" (not 7" x 13").
