Ultimate Wallet by So Sew Easy

I've been looking high a low for the perfect wallet. I know my wallet never seems to have enough space for all those cards I need to carry. I think I may have just found what I needed in the Ultimate Wallet a pattern by So Sew Easy.


.


With this wallet I have space to put identification cards for JubeJube and Amelia, my identification, credit cards/ bank cards and gift cards (I love those!) and I still have a couple of spaces left open.





There's an ever practicle change pouch and other little pockets on either side.


The next time I make this pattern I will make this pocket a little deeper so that papers as cash are not so close to the top, but everything does stay nicely in place when the outside flap is snaped tight.


I spent more time ironing than sewing, but so worth putting in that extra time to make sure everything is well pressed. I did some topstitching for all the little card pockets, that step was not included in the tutorial. I used two snaps instead of one, I just felt that it would help keep that flap closed.




Just to let you know, I did get this pattern for free in exchange for the review, but all opinions are my own! I'm going to need one for every season to match my purse now...so you better believe I'm going to get use out of this pattern.

If you like this pattern go visit DIY Crush, the perfect place to shop patterns for sewing, cross stitching, kniting and crocheting.


Until next time, xx.

  3. Love it! I just made it, and all of my cards found a place. If I had to do it again, like you said, the top pocket deeper, and maybe use something for inside fabric: the cards slide easily (in particular when I took my money on zippered pocket). Thanks for your review! :)
