I don't very often make anything for myself so I decided to make myself this wallet. I added embroidery to the front flap and it was the first time I've embroidered on faux leather. Pattern is the Necessary Clutch Wallet PDF pattern purchased from etsy.

There are a few YouTube tutorials on making these wallets, and also a facebook group (NCW ADDICTS) that I joined that have free add on files and are a great help

Thanks Cathy, I haven't been on here much as my sewing machine is getting more use than my embroidery machine of late. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I'm not much of a fan of wallets, but seeing yours I'm beginning to appreciate how fantastic they can be! Your attention to detail and eye for color and fabric combination is amazing. I don't think I've ever seen a latch like that before on one of these wallets. Can you share how you insert a latch like that?

love the wonder woman fabric, well done ~hugs~

Excellent piece! I would like to make this also It would be better lined, however or is it already?

The wallet is totally lined, interfacings and stabilizers give the wallet great structure and body

Wow! Karen, that looks so professional, you've done such a marvellous job on this wallet and I love the colours and fabrics you've used. It's good that you finally got to make something yourself. You always do such beautiful work on your bibs and nappy covers and children's clothes. Lovely to see you back, I notice you've not been on since October, have you been extra busy? Love Chris

You executed this pattern perfectly! Congratulations!!
I am intrigued as to how you have the lining so smooth. Is this fused to the exterior and to each piece?

Most pattern pieces have been interfaced and the body and flap have peltex (a heavy stabilizer) in them.
