Hello, I am super excited to be featured today! This is my first Moda Bake Shop design, and I hope you like it. I am Stacey from Maine, and I blog over at Stacey’s Place. I sure hope you stop by my blog today to get to know me a little better, and for a special treat (did someone mention giveaway?!?).
5 Layer Cake Pieces, cut as follows:
2 exterior pieces 4 ½” x 8 ¼”
2 interior pieces 4 ½” x 8 ¼”
1 fusible fleece 3 ½” x 7 ¾”
4 décor bond interfacing 4 ½” x 8 ¼”
1 strap (exterior fabric) 6 ½” x 4 ½”
1 fusible fleece (for strap) 6 ½” x 1 ½”
Snap (or velcro)
for card slots:
2 interior pieces 5” x 4 ½”
2 exterior pieces 6” x 4 ½”
2 interior pieces 7” x 4 ½”
On the wrong side of 1 exterior piece, fuse the 3 ½” x 7 ¾” fusible fleece in the center. Then fuse an interfacing piece to the wrong side over the fleece. On the remaining exterior piece and the two interior pieces, fuse interfacing to the wrong side.
Place the two exterior pieces right sides together, leaving a 3” opening on one of the short sides. Sew a ¼” seam. Clip the 4 corners, being careful not to cut your stitching. Turn right side out and press.
Take your 6 pieces for your card slots, fold in half wrong sides together and press. Edge-stitch on the top edge where the fold is. Then stitch a 3/8” seam from the folded edge. Your folded measurements are small 2 ½” x 4 ½”, medium 3” x 4 ½”, and large 3 ½” x 4 ½”.
With your interior piece and one small, medium, and large card slot piece, place a large piece on top of the interior piece. Match raw edges. Place a medium piece on top of the large one. Place a small one on top of the medium. Sew a ¼” seam to attach the slots to the interior piece. Repeat on the other side.
Place two interior pieces right sides together, leaving a 3” opening on the long bottom side. Sew a ¼” seam. Clip the 4 corners, being careful not to cut your stitching. Turn right side out and press.
Edge-stitch along both the exterior and interior pieces, starting and ending ¼” on the sides.
With your strap piece, fuse fusible fleece to the wrong side about 1” in from the edge. Fold your 1” piece wrong side onto the fleece. Fold the other piece in half, and fold again and match to the other side. Edge-stitch down the side, making sure you fold the end under. Edge-stitch and then edge-stitch down the other side.
Place your exterior piece and your interior piece on top of each other. Make sure the side you are using for the outside of your wallet is on the bottom. Make sure your interior piece is laying with the card slots facing up. In between these two pieces is going to be your money slot.
This is where I mock fold, to see where the strap goes, and where to place my snaps. On the exterior piece, fasten on the outside (through your side opening) where you want your bottom snap to be located. Follow manufacturer’s directions for snaps.
Place the snap where you want the top portion of your snap on the strap and fasten according to manufacturer’s directions. Attach the bottom portion of your snap and fasten according to manufacturer’s directions.
Now fold your wallet in half and snap together. Adjust your strap to where it looks right. Pin in place.
Make sure your exterior and interior pieces are lined up. Starting at the top of your side piece, edge-stitch down the side, across the bottom, and up the other side. **make sure you backtack each side** And remember not to edge-stitch the top. You already did this in a previous step.
All done, now you have a super cute wallet, from a easy and fast pattern, Enjoy!!
