Fancy making yourself  new wallet? Here are 5 wallet tutorials, all free – I love the fact people take time and effort to write free tutorials.

Phone wallet

Phone wallet by Indianna Dreams – this is a combination of two tutorials to create this unique wallet stroke phone holder.

Modest Haven wallet

Looking for something far simpler? Check out this card and note holder by Modest 

mel all wrapped up wallet

This wallet design includes card holder, note pocket and a zip pocket for coins, plus I love the patchwork detail:) From All wrapped up.


This pretty wallet has 6 card pockets, a note holder and change zip pocket from Very Purpleperson.


This bifold wallet includes handy wrist strap, PDF pattern available through Pattern Pile.

After all this research I have made one, this was commissioned as a gift. As always I love making commissions but also feel far more responsible, colour and fabric choices seem so much harder.

Fabric Wallet

Thank fully I know the recipient loves recycling too, and that she would be delighted with shirt fabric for the front and interior:)

    I spent today looking for a wallet that would hold my daughter’s phone, bus pass, and a bit of cash. We were unsuccessful, but now I have a great place to learn how to make one. Thanks.

    Oooh, I get scared when making small things like wallets. I get nervous if you need to add interfacing too!

    Thanls for sharing the tutorials, my purse has to contain cards, notes and coins, so I might have a go at the last one. I really like the fabric you’ve chosen for your one.

    I prefer ones that have room for lots of change and lots of plastic cards.I love the idea of reusing old material, making it thrifty and eco friendly.

    I just found this link through Ginx Craft. I need to make one of these for myself. I am going to be substitute teaching this year and don’t want to carry a pocketbook and my supply tote. I will be making one of these to slip into my tote. Thanks for the tutorial. They are beautiful.

    I have two equally important requirements:

    (1) Must have a place for coins;

    (2) Must have anti-theft protective shield. It’s called RFID protection and if I’d had it sooner I would not have had my credit card cloned. Thieves go around with a scanner and steal your identity, then they make purchases online which get charged to your account.

    My new wallet has that built-in, but you can also buy individual ones for all your cards, so I would slip that between the exterior and the interior of a home-make wallet. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.
