I think you’ll all love this pattern.

You can even fit in your cell phone.

Becky – Very cute. Not too hard but takes some patience.  I can get frustrated with patterns easily but this was pretty easy to follow. And it’s really cute!

Becky

Theresa of the DIY Page I really like how the wallet looks.  I love the interior pockets. I made #1 with the regular cash pocket. On #2, I made the cash pocket the same depth as the wallet and my cell fits nicely there. Even if the wallet was slimmer, my cell would fit fine. I may add a snap at the top so it doesn’t slip out.   Theresa’s tip – I made a template out of cardboard instead of using an old credit card. Since the template was longer than the slot, it really made folding go faster. I marked a half inch down from the top so I didn’t need to measure that part again. I still found it useful to line my slots against the first one.

The Ultimate Wallet. Simply the best wallet sewing pattern. Spaces for everything, almost like a small clutch purse.

Robin at The Pattern Tester – I like all the features (card slots, cash pocket, coin purse, etc.) to have everything in one place. I don’t carry much around with me, other than some loyalty cards, a debit card, cash, a few coins, iPhone, keys, and glasses, so something like this is perfect for me. I don’t care for all the card slot pleats. I had to actually pull out some old cards to fill it up. Could easily eliminate them from the change purse pieces though if you didn’t want so many. I like that the wallet can easily be customised to ones liking. This wallet will look great with all the pretty fabrics available, and I’m sure it will be a big hit!

Linda – I love all the spaces for cards. Also liked the size of the wallet as it is not too big to fit in a purse but can also by carried as a clutch to run a fast errand. However I would like to add a second zipper pouch so my cell phone is more secure. Thank you for a great pattern. Can make a nice gift. Everybody always need a nice wallet. Can we have a man version??

Louise – How did you ever figure this out!! I like it. It went together much easier than I thought. I liked that extra was added in areas so that if things didn’t lay right you had wiggle room.  The card slots were a little too wide for me – I think for my next version I’ll  go back and stitch down the card pockets on the sides so pockets are a little slimmer.

Thanks as always to the lovely ladies in the testing team who tried their hands at this pattern.  If this one is too big for you, too many card slots, then take a look at the earlier pattern for the Super Simple Wallet instead.

      Hi Deby, the link in the yellow box towards the bottom of this page should take you directly to the download in our Craftsy account. Let me know if that works!

    Thank you for this pattern!

  7. Carole Fox says:

    I liked the idea but was disappointed with the pattern. It was lacking of precision with the measurements. For instance the final size of purse was never given and mine finished too big and I was left with 1/4 inch to saw. I found it used a lot of fabric.

    I would love to purchase this pattern, but I cannot seem to link to the craftsy page. Is there another way to purchase this pattern? Thank you, Sam

  9. Lucy says:

    Hi! Thanks for the great pattern. The video tutorial was really helpful too. Wish I could post a photo of mine on here, I was dead proud of it! I did melt my zoo membership card to the iron though, oops! Do you have any good patterns for nappy bags? Is that even what they are called? A bag to hold all that new baby paraphernalia? Will be needing one soon! Thanks!

    I have the same green fabric!

  11. Carrie says:

    I purchased the Ultimate Wallet pattern and printed it off. I have made bags, quilts and alot of other different things but I’ve never made a wallet before, so I was happy to have the pattern and a video tutorial. Unfortunately, I can’t find the video tutorial. I have used the link printed on the pattern and it said page not found. The only video I found was the one on youtube.com of the 3:01 minute finished product. Can you help me with the correct video tutorial link? Thank you!

    • Carrie says:

      Thank you so much for all your wonderful patterns and tutorials. Please ignore the above question. My loving husband found it for me. For anyone else that may have come across this issue. When you are sent the pattern after purchase, in the pattern is the link, my computer had it highlighted and all I had to do was click on it, lol. Sometimes my brain has so much going on nothing makes sense. Happy sewing!

  12. Diane says:

    I love this wallet and purchased the pattern and a boxy bag at the same time. I downloaded and printed the boxy bag, but had to buy more ink before I could do the same with the wallet…now I don’t know how to get to the right place to print off the wallet pattern. help. Plz

    • You can either use the link in the pattern receipt that you got from Craftsy originally, or if you don’t have that the patterns are all saved for you by Craftsy in your pattern library. When you go to your Craftsy home page, click on the left hand menu where it says Patterns, and all the patterns you have ever saved are there ready for you to download when you are ready to sew. Hope that helps.

    Love this wallet going to buy the pattern hopefully Friday. I also have a three leg cat named Oliver. funny.

  14. Donna Kennedy says:

    I just watched the information video and fell in love with this wallet, I’m getting this and for the first time get serious about putting in a zipper. I’ve always been afraid of them but now have a good reason to learn how. Thank you for making a pattern with so many card slots. I’ll get the clear plastic for the ID pocket.

    I love this wallet! Would you mind if I shared your top photo and video on my site. Of course linking back to here?

  16. Angela Saam says:

    I can’t play the tutor I also video indicated after I bought the pattern

  17. Sandra :) says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA hi Oliver – you’re a cute “outtake”, LOL!! ! I was just on your mom’s “Pattern of the Month” giveaway page and this wallet caught my eye, so I came over for a closer look. I’m glad I did – the wallet is SUPER cool so my fingers are crossed that I’m the lucky winner – I haven’t even looked at the other patterns yet because this one was so cool – off to go do some more investigating!

  18. Barbara says:

    I just finished making this wallet! It turned out very nice but the only thing I need to comment on is that you didn’t state in the instructions that the interfacing should be the fusible kind. I didn’t have any fusible and had already cut my interfacings with the sew in kind. This made my sewing delayed and more expensive because I had to go back out and buy the fusible interfacing.

    • Deby Coles says:

      Fusible interfacing isn’t essential for this project, you could use the sew-in kind instead, but its certainly more convenient and I think easier to use, so you’ll see me using that in all my projects. But if you prefer the sew in kind, or thats all you have on hand, you can certainly use it instead.

  19. brooke says:

    I might have to order this just for that 3 legged cat.

  20. Karen says:

    This looks great, but would definitely add an outside pocket with a snap or velcro tab to keep my cell phone. And maybe some small straps so I don’t have to carry anything but this when I go out!

    Thanks for all your free patterns.
