Hooray this post took a few days to edit and write! But it is done now (hopefully)!
This post is already ridiculously long so I won't say much here ^0^ but if there are any steps that are unclear or if you have any questions, please comment below and I will do my best to explain!
這篇寫了好幾天! 終於寫完了! (倒
First decide on your finished wallet dimensions.
Width=W+1/2" (for quarter-inch binding)
Length=L+1/2" (for quarter-inch binding)
First piece is Fashion Fabric (FF). Width:2W Right Length:L Left Length:2L
Next is the Lining 1 (L1). Same dimensions as FF,flipped.
Third is the Reverse Lining (RL). Same dimensions as FF.
Last is Lining 2 (L2). Width:2W Length:L
第一塊布是表面布Fashion Fabric (FF)。 寬度:2W 右邊長度:L 左邊長度:2L
旁邊是裡布Lining 1(L1)。 尺寸和FF一樣，反過來
接下來是反面裡布Reverse Lining(RL)。 尺寸和FF一樣
最後一塊是裡布2(L2)。 寬度:2W 長度:L
Pocket 1(P1) Width:2W Length:2(L-1/2")
Pocket 2(P2) Width:2W Length:P1Length-1"
Pocket 3(P3) Width:2W Left Length:P2Length-1" Right Length:Left Length+L
口袋一 Pocket 1(P1) 寬度:2W 長度:2(L-半吋)
口袋二 Pocket 2(P2) 寬度:2W 長度:P1長度-1吋
口袋三 Pocket 3(P3) 寬度:2W 左邊長度: P2-1吋 右邊長度: 左邊長度+L
Fold each pocket piece in half lengthwise, press, and stitch 1/8" from folded edge
In the photo P3 has been flipped to show the backside
Align the bottom edges of P1 and L2 (P1 is slightly shorter than L2)
Measure 2" down from the top of P1 and stitch
Align the bottom edges of P2 and P1, measure 2" down from P2, and stitch
Flip up the raw edge of P2 and trim the seam allowance from P1 to reduce bulk
(I accidentally attached RL already so disregard that...)
Same thing with P3, align, measure 2", stitch, trim P2 seam allowance
Stitch a straight line down the center to split the pockets into two halves
Align top edges of L2 with RL right sides together, stitch, flip to right side, and topstitch
Line up FF with L1 and pin. On the little rectangle at the bottom, draw a rectangle measuring the length and width of your zipper. At each end, draw a little triangle (like the photo)
FF和L1裡面對裡面用大頭針固定。 在下面的小方形上畫出拉鏈的長度和寬度。 頭尾畫個小三角型(如圖)
Cut along the inner lines and press seam allowances to the inside
Sandwich the zipper between FF and L1 and stitch all around
Align FF/L1 with the pocket piece(RL/L2/P1-3)and pin
Bind all around with bias tape (The one I used was a bit too narrow; I suggest using bias tape that is at least a quarter inch wide when folded)
Create a small snap button tab to keep the wallet secured when folded
How to Use/使用方法:
Stick your bills and coins into the inner pocket and fold as shown. The coins will fall into the change pocket at the bottom and can be retrieved via the outside zipper
Pockets for your cards!口袋!
I hope this was helpful (or at the very least, interesting)
It took me a long time to figure out the schematics of this design and also to write this tutorial ^^; For extra strength, you can interface the layers.
If there is interest, I can also custom-make these wallets for you!
