Wallet making question

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I’m Juliette, I’m new to this craft (I’m a decent seamstress and patternmaker) and I’m starting with wallets.

I wanted to ask what’s this strip of leather on the inside, is it for durability or something else?

welcome to the forum.  It is a folded edge to provide a little more rigidity to the edge of the wallet.  When using chrome tan leathers, it is preferable to do this.  Otherwise it is pretty soft and can become misshapen easily.
