The wallet sewing pattern is here!

This wallet has been through so many incarnations and outfits. We have Amy Butler belle in duck egg and pink or lotus in yellow/grey, then a grey flea market fancy and dots combo, and many others besides, but the cover girl I've decided to run with is in summersville weave and scandi in cheery red.

angharad handmade wallet pattern

finished size (closed): 4.5 inches x 5.5 inches
(open): 9 inches x 5.5 inches

As you can see, you can really alter the look of this wallet with your choice of fabric - you could introduce some more sedate prints for a more masculine feel, or mix and match the inside pockets as it takes your fancy!

The wallet has divided pockets (4) on the inside for all your cards, as well as a sleeve for notes, and a zipped change compartment accessible from the outside. 

It can be made from as little as 2 fat quarters (18" x 22" quilter's cut) of fabric if you use a rotary cutter for accuracy, or 1 fat quarter for the exterior and 1/2 yard for the interior if you're using cut out paper pattern pieces. The only other supplies you'll need are some fusible and sew-in interfacing, matching thread and some velcro tape.

The wallet pattern consists of 10 pages of step-by-step instructions with lots of full colour images to illustrate the method. It includes full-sized pattern pieces on pages 11-17, as well as the dimensions (all simple rectangles!) should you prefer to cut with a rotary cutter and mat. Pattern measurements are in inches throughout to aid with use of a quilter's ruler.

The pattern costs £5 (around $8 USD) and you can click on the 'buy now' button to go through to paypal to purchase, or go over to the angharad handmade patterns page (where there will be more patterns available in due course). Your purchased pattern will be emailed to you within 24 hours, and as it's a pdf file, there are no shipping charges to pay! (Alternatively, patterns are available for immediate download from my etsy shop, see below).

Patterns are also available in my etsy shop.

I am happy for you to make wallets to sell in your etsy/folksy shop etc from the pattern, but would just ask that you credit the design to 'angharad handmade'.


  1. Well hello you! Thank you for catching up with me in my space. Yes the last year has been a bit crazy and wild I must say. Regrettably, I do not have much time to blog and take photos any more. Kind of sad really, but I have not abandoned my space and try to post when I can. Hope you are doing well. Hugs.

    1. Hello! It was good to catch up with your latest. I've been quite an absent blogger of late due to house moving and settling in with the children, but getting back to it now and all is good here, thanks!

    1. Thanks so much Ruby. It's not too difficult a project - you can even skip the zipped pocket part for a simple card wallet which makes it even quicker to put together.
