Thanks for this Kate, I did this yesterday and last night and between the pdf pattern and your step by step instructions, it was easy to follow and make.

Kate, Fantastic job-----I just finished a holster for a customer and started cutting out parts for a wallet-it is exactly what I was looking for. I hope mine comes out as good as yours. Art

Just tried both links in the original post, both work for me.  Maybe try again.

northmount> good deed. It will be useful for many beginners asking for such howto. One document is clearer than hunting that on the forum thread. ;)

I'm new at this, and Kate's wallet will be the most complex thing I have tried yet. I understand the construction, but have a basic question. Does the cover attach to anything other than panel #5? Does the bottom of the zipper compartment (by the snaps) attach to the cover?

Thanks for the tutorial and patterns.

So I never saw where you attach the cover to all these parts , or I totally missed it . Plus when it is folded the short end does match the outside but it will not open all the way  ?? Don't get it .

She didn't. it's pretty easy, just glue and stitch/lace it to the outside

 

what do you mean it won't open all the way? Got a pic you can show us?

Sorry, but where’s the PFD with the tutorial. I’m only seeing the PFD with the pattern. I’d really like to try this wallet out! Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much for the pattern. I'm looking forward to building one.

I've printed it out and, I don't know if I should have done it border-less or not. but it came out looking small so I put a ruler to it. The zippered piece  is 6 5/16"  X 513/16", and the card piece is 2 1/8" X 3 5/8".

I can adjust the size without reprinting, I work in a custom sheet metal shop, I have learned how to adjust on the fly for almost everything I make :-D

For patterns you should always print actual size as a starting point.  When you scale a PDF to fit paper, or to remove borders, you skew the pattern dimensions.
