The zip around wallet purse is such a versatile addition in your collection. It has everything that a wallet should function for, from credit card slots, cash compartments, zipper pocket, enough room to carry your cellphone, with bonus adjustable strap and a wristlet strap.
Finished wallet measurements : approx. 8" x 4 1/2" (20.3 x 11.5 cm)
6x card slots (each slot can accommodate up to 2x cards)
1x zipper pocket
2x slip pocket compartments (for cash, passport, boarding pass, etc)
2x middle compartments (perfect for cellphone)

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THE ZIP AROUND WALLET PURSE
Cotton quilting fabric is what I use here, about 1/2 yard for the interior, and 1/4 yard for the exterior fabric
Decovil light is applied to the wallet interior, in order to give the wallet a structure.
Alternative choice : Pellon 809 (decor bond), Pellon 808 (craft fuse).
Fusible woven interfacing is used to add stability to the wallet exterior panels. 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 a little stability without too much bulkiness.
ZIPPER & HARDWARE
20" (teeth length) metal zipper for the zipper closure.
All purpose nylon coil zipper at least 8" long for the zipper pocket.
1/2" d-ring - you will need 2x pcs.
1/2" swivel hooks - you will need 3x pcs (2 for the adjustable strap, and 1 for the wristlet strap).
1/2" adjustable strap slider
RFID blocking fabric (optional)
1/8" basting tape to baste the zipper pocket; 1/4" basting will work as well.
What fabric line did you use in this project?
For the exterior fabric I use Exquisite collection by Gerri Robinson for Riley Blake, for the wallet interior I use fabric from Art Gallery Fabric.
