Pocket Pal PAPER PATTERN
This listing is for a PAPER pattern only! If you want to make your own Pocket Pal, you're in the right place. You are NOT purchasing a completed wallet.
With this purchase you will be mailed a paper version of this pattern with full pattern pieces, detailed pictures, and step by step instructions. It will come in a resealable plastic bag with a vent hole and convenient hanging hole.
This pattern is designed to be used with any self -healing material such as cork, leather, vinyl etc as the edges are left raw (with the option of using edge paint to finish off the edges.) Do NOT try making with cotton fabric!
This is a beginner friendly pattern, but you should be comfortable with inserting zippers, and cutting & sewing accurately which will make all the difference in the overall end look since the edges are left raw. If you've never sewn with cork, vinyl or leather before, please read the "Tips & Tidbits" section carefully where we share our tips for sewing with these materials.
Specs: Finished wallet is approximately 5½” wide by 4” tall, has 3 recessed card slots, (with a closure tab to keep them secure), and a zippered main compartment.
You may sell the items you make from this pattern on a small-scale handmade basis, and credit is appreciated. (Not intended for commercial use.)
