Average rating: (5 of 5) based on 4 reviewsgreat 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.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.

- 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).
