Michelle Patterns has a another great offer up for grabs this weekend! The Basic Wallet pattern is being retired and is available for $5 (with bonus pattern pieces for a larger size included) through this weekend only. This pattern is quick to make and does not take a lot of material to produce. The instructions include tips on strategic cutting to ease bulk in the corners, how to sew better corners, how to keep pockets from gaping open, and seam grading. It's also a great pattern for customizing!
I used this pattern a few years ago (excuse the old photos!) to create a few pieced iPhone pouches by simply adding a bit of width to the pattern pieces and adding a wrist strap. You'll find a tutorial here on how to make the simple strap pictured below. The wallet includes two pockets and is a good size for carrying cards + cash or small gadgets like phones.
