Here are the dimensions of this particular wallet, i used the flamingo and as a contrasting fabric Grey chevron

Fold the fabric in an accordion style to look like this, make sure all the raw edges are on the left side of the piece.

 

fold the 3″ piece in half and sew along the edge, flip it and press

this is your pen loop

with the main fabric facing up lay the zipper zip side down on the right edge, lay your lining fabric ontop right sides down

Sew a 1/4″ seam allowance (dont get too close to the zipper just yet)

Flip the piece right sides up and then push the main fabric towards the teeth and sew 1mm away from the zipper teeth

*By pushing the fabric to the teeth you give it a cleaner look as well as not effecting the dimension of the finished product

Do the same thing on the opposite side of the zipper with the remaining fabrics, line up the edges with the zipper making sure the right sides are facing each other

Sew along the edge and then flip right sides out and top stitch 1mm away from the zipper teeth

If you like this pattern but wish for a larger size check out my A5 pattern here!

This is how it should look, now its time to place the card slots onto the left side

place the piece with right sides together and the zipper in the middle, flip back the top fabric to place the card slots in and pin the pen look in the appropriate spot

Flip the fabric back over and then sew all the way around leaving a 3″ gap at the bottom of the zipper pouch for turning

When sewing over the zipper be sure to unzip the zip inside the bag, try to open the bag half way as you will need this part to be open to flip the entire wallet right sides out

when you go over the zipper fold it in half with the raw edges lined up, this will make the zipper look nice and neat  once finished

flip the back right sides out and then sew up the gap of the zipper pouch with a top stitch and then your finished!

Very easy and ready to be place inside a Traveler’s notebook

Newborn Scratch Mittens

Materials

Get the pattern here!

Minky Fabric – for the outer

Flannelette – for the lining

1/4″ – elastic

for 1 mitten cut out two pieces of each fabric, also 5″ of elastic

Place them against each other, right sides together. Normally i just wing things and dont use pins but minky tends to be  very slippery and shifts during the sewing process so i recommend a ton of pins.

This is a photo of a protype so disregard the fabric being different, once you have sewn around each glove leaving the cuff open turn the lining right side out and place that inside the outter piece like shown. If you have any difficulty understanding please check out my tutorial linked below!

Sew around the edge of the cut leaving a 1 inch Gap (which is used for turning)

This is how it will look when you turn it all right sides out with the 1″ hole visible

Place the lining inside the Minky fabric

Sew a 1/2″ hem around the cuff to create the casing for the elastic (the 1″ hole will now be used to insert the elastic)





put the elastic in using a safety pin and secure the two ends with your sewing machine. dont make it too tight as you dont want to cut off circulation on little baby

using a needle and thread do a blind stitch to sew up the 1″ hole and then your done!

So adorable and soft and perfect for my new niece who is ready to enter the world any day now <3!!
