WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS WALLET
Cotton quilting fabric is my fabric of choice for this project, since I always have them on hand, and I love the wide range of beautiful prints available. Cotton quilting fabric is also easy to work with, and you can find them pretty much anywhere at your local fabric store or online.
Alternative choice : canvas, linen, or light denim
Decovil light is what I use for the external fabric. It is durable, and has that leathery feel to it, yet very easy to work with. I highly recommend this interfacing for wallet making.
Alternative choice : Pellon 809 (decor bond), Pellon 808 (craft fuse).
Ultra lightweight interfacing - Pellon PLF 36 this one will be used for the card pocket panel, to add a bit of stability without adding too much bulk.
Alternative choice : any light weight interfacing (that has no stretch to it).
6" (teeth length) metal zipper for the external zipper pocket. Metal zipper will add an edge to the look of your wallet.
Alternative choice : regular nylon coil zipper.
Button snap closure 12.5mm for your wallet's closure.
1/8" basting tape to baste your zipper; 1/4" basting will work as well.
Clear Vinyl (I use gauge 8 vinyl) - if you opt for ID pocket.
1/2" d-ring and swivel hook - if opt for wristlet strap.
1/2" cotton twill tape - if opt for wristlet strap.
RFID blocking fabric (optional)
Basic Sewing notions; include sewing machine, needle, polyester thread, seam ripper (because we all make mistakes), etc.
Walking Foot to sew bulky part with multiple layer of fabric. Trust me, using walking foot will make your life much easier, I use walking foot for general sewing too.
Zipper Foot to sew zipper with ease.
1/4" presser foot (if you opt for design 2), this will make sewing patchwork more accurate.
Leather hole punch tool to install your button snap closure. You can certainly use the hole punching tool that comes with your button kit, but using this tool will make it much quicker, and it's also a useful tool to have around your house.
What fabric line did you use in this project?
Design 1: Woodland Notions collection by Nina Ruby from Dashwood Studios UK. I purchased these fabrics from Etsy.
Design 2 : I use mix and match fabric scraps (wallet exterior), combination from Moda, Maywood and Craftsy; for the wallet interior I use fabric from Art Gallery Fabric.
