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.
These simple bifold wallets are perfect for kids as their first wallet to carry their student ID, library card, membership card, and a bit of cash (in case they need to bring some to school every now and then).
Finished wallet measurements : Approx. 4" x 3 3/4" (10 x 9.5 cm)
Features include :
4x card slots
2 compartments (great for older notes or extra cards)
Button snap closure (optional)

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE KIDS BIFOLD WALLET
Fabric 1 : 1/8 yard Cotton quilting fabric
Fabric 2 : 1/8 yard OR 1x fat eight Cotton quilting fabric
Feel free to use heavier fabric such as canvas or denim for the wallet exterior.
Decor bond (Pellon 809) is applied to the wallet interior, to give the wallet a structure.
Alternative choice : Decovil Light, Pellon 808 (craft fuse).
Fusible woven interfacing is used to add stability to the wallet exterior panel. You may leave this out if you use heavier weight fabric (e.g. canvas or denim).
Lightweight interfacing (I use pellon PLF36), we apply this on the card pocket panels, to give some stability without too much bulkiness.
1 set of button snap (12.5 mm) - optional
