If you need a larger wallet, get my other pattern, found here:

This listing is for the sewing pattern. If you are looking for the actual wallet, if I have any, the choices can be found in my wallet section:

I get a lot of questions about whether a beginner can make some of the things I make. Most of the time I say yes. For this sewing pattern, I am going to say no.

You need to be comfortable behind the wheel of your sewing machine to make this project.
You need to cut accurately, mark accurately, and stitch accurately.
You need to have a walking foot and be comfortable with it.
You need to be comfortable with installing zippers.
You need to be glad to apply piping and not wish you could skip it.
You need to have a fresh sewing machine needle and not be sewing on the same dull needle you have had in there for the last 10 projects.
You have to be okay with some hand basting.

Outer pocket options:
-Zippered outside pocket fits iPhone4 but not if it is inside a non-slip rubber skin
-Velcro or snap outer pocket (shown with black piping 4th photo) fits iPhone4 in a rubber skin
-ID window outer pocket option
Inside Pockets:
3 credit card pockets
1 zippered hinged change pocket (that is a fun thing to learn)
2 money or coupon pockets

Take a close look at the photos of this project. It is the most professionally made zip around wallet you will ever see. I am confident in saying it is made better than most of the bags you can find in stores. I have shopped around to try to get a factory to make my Kindle Fire cases so I could sell them on Amazon and they won't do it because of the detail I demand. Factories take shortcuts, I don't. You will be making zip around wallets that are so much better than any that are factory made.

The pattern pieces print full sized with no taping together. All pattern pieces are included and labeled with sizes so you can double check your printer.

Every step is fully explained and illustrated. The instructions are probably overkill for those of you buying this pattern but I wanted to give the ambitious novice a fighting chance.

I "sew" enjoy all my Studio Cherie patterns. They provide easy to follow instructions and the pieces actually work together. I've been sewing since I was 19 (which means A LONG TIME!) and believe me, not all patterns have pieces that match up correctly or actually work together the way the pattern says they should. Great product! Thank You!

I liked the download--it was instant and I could get started on the wallet--selecting fabrics, etc. I also ordered the zipper and was happy. The directions were easy to follow. I could print the actual pattern and follow the directions in color on my tablet at the machine. I made one for myself and am thinking of making some for gifts.
