Pick-a-Pocket Wallet

I tested another wallet pattern for Christine of ChrisW Designs and she now has the pattern for sale in her newly updated website. She had a contest to name the wallet and Pick-a-Pocket Wallet was the name chosen. (click on the link to buy the pattern and to see all the other tester's wallets at the bottom of her page). You have choices when making this wallet; you can choose more credit card slots or a second zippered pocket if you don't need all those card slots. I chose to make the zippered pocket, giving me 2 zippered pockets because I don't have many cards. Christine even featured my wallet on her blog here too.  The name Pick-a-Pocket Wallet fits nicely. Thanks Christine for another great wallet.

Here is my wallet. I chose to use one fabric for both inside and outside the wallet. Since it is a hand dyed fabric, the colors changed across the fabric and I never knew how it would look for sure until it was finished. I love how it turned out and have been using this wallet since I finished making it. My friends all loved it too when they saw it.
The wallet front closed.
The wallet opened so you can see the front/back all together.
The wallet opened and empty. You can see the clear I.D. pocket and credit card slots above the I.D. pocket. I chose to add the second  zippered pocket. The pocket with the pink zipper is the pocket I made instead of adding more credit card pockets here. So you can pick the pocket you want here.
Wallet opened with all my stuff inside. You can put your cash in this pocket here or above the cards is another pocket for cash or receipts.
Closes with a tab snap closure.
Oh I almost forgot to take a photo with the zipper pulls I made added on.
Just a little finishing touch and makes is easier to grab and zip the zippers too.

  4. I've been waiting for you to post about this wallet since I saw it on Christine's blog. Fabulous, fabulous fabric turned into a stunning wallet! (And I was anticipating that perhaps you would tell us that you had dyed it yourself!)
