In A Snap; Kids Wallet Tutorial
Here's a quick project you can whip up in a snap! Makes a nice little stocking stuffer for some lucky little one.
What you'll need
- 2 pieces of exterior fabric, 5 x 9 inches
- 1 piece of exterior fabric for pocket, 5 x 5.5 inches
- 1 piece of contrasting fabric, 5 x 7 inches
- 1 piece of medium weight fusible interfacing, 4 x 8 inches
- 1 snap fastener
Fold pocket pieces in half, press and top-stitch along folded edge. Your pocket pieces should now be 5 x 3.5 and 5 x 2.75 inches. (note, depending on what size snap you use and the weight of your fabric, you may want to insert a small piece of interfacing between the layers of your smaller, exterior fabric pocket, so the snap doesn't tear the fabric over time)
Lay the larger pocket on top of one exterior fabric piece.
Layer the smaller pocket on top.
Place the other exterior fabric piece on top.
Pin through all the layers and round the top.
Sew around with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Leave an opening just above where the pocket begins.
Carefully turn right side out and top-stitch all the way around.
Fold the flap down and add a snap.
Super fun and easy. Make 1....or 8.
