I am not happy with the seam and will be removing it and re-sew.
I also couldn’t do top stitch in perfect straight line and has gone looking for tips and found this :) :

The left are the heavy cotton pieces that I abandoned which were meant to use as cover. In the process of making this wallet, I broke 2 sewing machine needles and lost a few drops of blood. The needle accidentally poked my finger while I was basting the seam. :(
I was wondering before what this little thing on the right picture is for, but now I have the experience of using it and found the name for it, the Thimble.
