My phone and a few essentials fit perfectly without much bulk so I can leave my purse at home most days.Was this helpful?Looks really goodSome layers quite thick, had to hand-crank sewing machine sometimes. Our sewing teacher used this as an Online Zoom class project.Was this helpful?Wallet PatternGood Pattern. Just the right size. Plan on making more for gifts. Put a lock instead of snap, looks great!1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Wallet PatternI made the wallet with vinyl on the outside and cotton on the inside. I made it to match the handbag I had just finished. It turned out good. I did find the directions a bit confusing and I found a YouTube video which really helped.1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Organizer walletI was looking for a wallet with room for all my cards and that will allow me to be creative This wallet met my criteria. I used leather for the outside of it, and am still trying to decide on the lining for the final projectWas this helpful?Love this pattern!I made myself one of these wallets about 2 years ago, and I still use it. I immediately made another as a gift because it was so fun to make! I have just recently re-made them as the fabric was getting a little worn from going in and out of a purse every day. The instructions are clear (as long as you read carefully) and it doesn't take long to make! For this second round, I added a second card pocket behind the change purse and I'm excited to try it out. There were a lot of layers to sew through but my machine could handle it!1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Nice Wallet!I have made one wallet so far and have several more cut out to make for gifts. I did find the instructions a bit confusing, but I found a you-tube video of someone who has made one and that made it so much easier! Once done, I am very happy with it. Well worth the money.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Have it all walletI ordered several of these patterns for a class my shop was giving and all of the girls loved the pattern and all went home with a finished wallet!Was this helpful?Love this walletGreat wallet and easy, quick,and easy to make!Was this helpful?Lovin' this wallet!!I had never sewn a wallet before. And this wallet was a-m-a -z-i-n-g! I just cannot believe how well put together it is and how easy it is to put together! Thank you so much!!3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Love love love it!This is a great, no fuss, easy wallet to sew. My new favourite pattern.1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Very usefulI really like this pattern, but I first had to make a few adjustments. Once I customized it, it has become a favorite go to.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Lovely pattern for a very useful walletLove how this pattern turned out. I can't wait to make more in different colours. Overall the instructions were clear, and the result is a very handy wallet with plenty of space for everything. I think next time I might use a heavier interfacing for the card pockets, so they're held in a bit tighter. The instructions for installing a magnetic snap could be a bit clearer, as well as those for folding and sewing the card pockets. All in all though, a great pattern!1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?A bit confused by directionsI was mystified by the lack of a finished edge in the top of the accordion pocket, just a fused edge? Also the placement of the zipper pocket, Placed at the bottom edge of the wallet back that seems to leave a large piece of fabric hanging. The diagram on the previous page shows the zipper pocket at the the upper edge of accordion pocket. How did others handle that? I turned it behind the zipper pocket and made another pocket.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Quick and effective!This pattern was chosen by my mum-in-law for her birthday, so I am extremely thankful that it turned out to be quick and easy to make! She loves it by the way! ;-)3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Wallet completedI like my completed wallet. It was a bit like solving a sudoku—thinking and planning were required. In the future, I will experiment with different interfacings. I used velcro for my closure and sewed it in before stitching everything together. Sewing a snap on at the very end would be challenging.3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?My new favorite...I love the finished wallet, but had trouble understanding the written directions for the zipper portion of the pattern. However, with help from a friend, we figured it out and were good to go. I've whipped up four wallets and taught some friends how to make it, as well. I've made some adjustments to the pattern, including streamlining the cutting out and interfacing prep process. I've also used fusible fleece on the outside of the wallet so I can quilt it and substituted a heavier interfacing to add some substance to the wallet lining and pockets. I've even added a removable wrist strap and am toying with adding a back pocket for my cell phone. The bones of the pattern are great and with some tweaking, it has become my new favorite.5 of 5 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?A really lovely patternI really like this pattern - it makes a lovely wallet and I'm absolutely sure I'll be making more as gifts. I did get stuck on one aspect of the pattern (setting in a snap) but I had a prompt response to my problem which immediately helped me to see where I'd missed a step which is in the pattern guide. And I proceeded to make the wallet from start to finish that evening. Having made my first wallet, I think I will use even firmer interfacing for the outer part, and perhaps the accordian pocket, next time but that's just about the ways one starts to personalise and change things to a pattern when it's a delight to sew. As has been indicated with other reviews, the hard part is making fabric choices!5 of 5 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?cute walletThat pattern is very clearly written. I was rather intimidated at the idea of making a wallet but with the step by step instructions it was actually a fun project. I am looking forward to making a few more. I want one for myself, the hardest part will be finding the material that I want for it. I did modify the direction of the cc pockets after reading another poster's review.4 of 4 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?LOVED IT!I can't say how much I loved this pattern. It was so easy to follow, and the instructions were much easier to follow than a store-bought pattern. The small size of this project made printing the pattern pieces out at home a breeze. I followed all the directions and bought the super thick interfacing, which I would definitely recommend. I've been using my wallet for a month now and it works so well. I've been showing it off to anyone who will listen. Loved it!4 of 4 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Great wallet!Pattern is thorough and easy to follow, with lots of options to customize by choosing different fabrics. Amount of different pockets is great; the wallet may be a bit floppy if interfacing is substituted.3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Great patternA great pattern.

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 :)4 of 4 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Have It All WalletGreat pattern easy to understand instructions have made 2 with a few more to go, Christmas gifts!3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Great Pattern, Great Wallet!I 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 :)9 of 9 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Nice WalletLove 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. :(7 of 7 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?great funMade 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.7 of 7 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Have It All WalletThis 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.9 of 9 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Best Wallet Ever!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.7 of 7 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?WalletReally pleased with the finished result. The instructions were very easy to follow. Thank you.3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Have it all Wallet reviewThis 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.7 of 7 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?have it all walletI 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!!!!3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?The BEST pattern Ever!!!!I 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. Jennifer3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was 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").
