Wallet Project - Part 1 (Looking for Tutorials)

I have been thinking to make wallet and have looked around for tutorials and found these useful links: 

finished size when folded: 21x10 cm  (8.5"x4")
finished size when opened: 21x20 cm (8.5"x8")
2 full width pockets
1 zippered pocket
6 card slots
(Azaidris used light weigth interface for card slots and medium weigth for wallet body and it worked well.)

2) Trifold Floral Wallet  -

This has a section on "Tips on cutting and ironing fusible interfacing".  Suggest you read before making any wallet.  :)

With instruction on how to sew zip.   It used turn & top stitch technique.

4) Quilted Wallet -

Looks like it is about the same size as 1) but without zippered pocket, 6 card slots, 4 half width pockets and 2 full width pockets.

(Azaidris used heavy cotton so she didn't use batting and it turned out great.)

5) Supercool Wallet -


Similar size as 1) but tri-fold.  1 zippered pocket and similar card holders as 3).

Zip closure with external pocket.   I have looked a few times, didn't find card pockets.

 (thanks to nojie#craft for reminding me of this post, her experience is to use the thinnest interfacing.)


10) Mandarin tutorial here:  with additional notes in English here:

Many more links here but I haven't looked carefully yet:

Hi Jamilah,
Glad that it is useful for you.. :)

Hi Mila,
Good! We can learn from each other.. :)

Hi Nojie,
Thanks for the link and the tips. I saw that before and was drafting my pattern based on that, but when I was doing the article, somehow I missed it. I will add the information to post so that others will see it also..

I dah try pattern no.1 & no.4.
Both ok..
For no.1..utk card slot, i guna interface light wt. Utk body wallet, interface med wt.

For no.4, i tak guna batting sbb guna neavy cotton. Turned out great.
