Did you have any problems getting that wallet to stay shut? Did you sew it like a billfold and not connect the interior to the tooling leather around the fold?
I'm making one for my sister and wondering if I need to modify my design to accommodate a snap closure strap.
Thanks for any help.

I think the final width of the leather ended up being 9 3/8" if that helps you at all.

Hoping to reverse the order in that one of these days!!

Great looking piece, BTW. I'm foreseeing the thread color issue for myself too since the interior doesn't seem to match Tandy's natural linen thread...will need to shop around, I guess.
Thanks for the advice!

looks nice.....but.....learn repition on the stitching and it would not look so uneven.....and just my opinion.....I am not a fan of edge paint.....
Thanks. Stitching is something I know I still need to work on; it's better than when I started but clearly not where it should be.
That's not edge paint, though. Black sharpie then burnishing with saddle soap and canvas.

I like it a lot. I'll be darned, never thought of just buying the interior and doing my own thing on the outside. Good advice
Thanks. I'd honestly prefer to be doing my own interiors, I'm just not there yet. Not a knock on the CF inserts which are very well made and high quality, but I'd rather be able to say I made something entirely from scratch. I've managed to pull it off on my last few larger projects but really need to try harder with wallet interiors.

I think it looks great and someone is going to get alot of good years out of it.
