I can't never share enough of wallet projects indeed :). I've been wanting to make a simple wallet for my son to be his first wallet. I managed to create one for him (the one with blue rocket/space fabric - leftover from making his quilt few years ago).
I like the outcome so much, then I thought why not make another one (the pink one with button snap closure to add variation to this pattern). Although these wallets are labeled for "kids", they can be made for adult too, especially if you like minimalistic wallet style.
