I made my first wallet way back in 2009 and used it for almost 2 years. I liked it so much that when it came time to make a new wallet, I made the same one again with a few tweaks (I replaced the change pocket with more card pockets). Lately, I noticed that my current wallet was looking rather dingy but wasn't sure if I wanted to make another one or just buy one. Luckily, I came across the Have it All Wallet pattern by Straight Stitch Society either while browsing blogs or Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try. I finished it up yesterday and it is now officially residing in my bag.

This thing has a TON of pockets which means it has plenty of space to carry stuff. It really is more of a wallet/clutch hybrid - you can stash a phone in it plus a lip balm or two in addition to your usual wallet stuff. I really love the accordion style pocket + zipper pouch - so fun! Overall it was easy to make. It took me forever to pick fabrics but that's how it usually goes for me. The only change I made was adding more interfacing - I used Craft Fuse for the outer part of the wallet as well as the lining piece and used Pellon SF101 for everything else. I added a jumbo metal snap for the closure.
