Back in December I won a Vera Bradley ID Wallet when I attended a Fund For Women event at Connor’s Mercantile here in Corning, NY. It’s a great little wallet, so I thought I’d see if I could figure out how to make one. It wasn’t that difficult…and here is what I ended up with! Not bad considering it’s made from scraps.
The original one is on top. I will do some minor tweaking and write the pattern up for all of you!
It’s zippered on top and has a vinyl window for an id card (or in this case, my friend’s business card…I love my Mica Pure Water Adya Clarity!).
I used a non-stick foot to sew on the vinyl but you could use a walking foot. For some insight on sewing on vinyl and laminates, check out this article.
The only tricky part was sewing the bias tape around the raw edges on the inside. It looks a little messy but it’s not really seen, so who cares!
