A statement travel wallet

Hello and Happy Monday!



It's already middle of the month. It's been a busy month for me. On the home front, my younger son won his second Taekwondo medal on Saturday. It was a bronze medal but we are so proud of him!!


Sewing wise, I finished 3 passport holder in 3 different style. Two were orders and the 3rd one I made for stock.

She wanted the Travel wallet for his son which can fit in  passport booklet of 3. I suggested this pattern which I used for my own wallet when I travel.


I change  the interfacing for the slot using woven interfacing and it can easily fit in 3 booklet Passport.


I also added a flap just to make it extra secure. The flap measure 0.75" w x 6" H. It's perfect size for this wallet. As for binding, I decided using the same exterior fabric.

The second wallet she wanted for herself. She loves sewing and she loves green. After sending her photos of  fabric choices, she settled for this sewing notion print which I got from Japan trip last time.


I am so glad I finally got to use this fabric. On the inside I used similar combo as this wallet, which she initially referred to.  It's a perfect statement wallet, right? That's why handmade fabric wallet is always better, IMHO. ^^


The 3rd one is this passport cover using the same fabric as the first wallet. I really love this naval theme fabric.

This was a fast project. I am in the process of writing the pattern right now which hopefully will get into testing by the end of this week.

I love how compact is this one and if needed, you can add more card slots on the other sleeve as well, or maybe adding zipper on the other sleeve. What do you think?

I am quite happy to be able to finish the wallets last week. I guess the batching is working great for me. They say, it needs 21 days to create a habit and 90 days to become a lifestyle. I even got myself a new planner! 



Now I can keep everything in track. Even though there are lots of apps on the phone nowadays, I feel writing on a book is so much better.




I hope I will be able to stick to this new habit :D

Have a lovely Monday!
