With this purchase, you will receive a PDF pattern with detailed pictures and step by step instructions on how to make your own compact, trifold wallet. This is an intermediate pattern, in that it requires accurate cutting and sewing. This is not recommended for someone brand new to sewing. You should be comfortable inserting zippers and sewing accurate seam allowances as this project is very small, and attention to detail is important for the final product. We've included dozens of pictures to accompany each step, as well as cutting measurements if you prefer not to print out any of the pattern pieces. 


Specs: Finished wallet is approximately 7" wide by 4 1/2" tall when closed (12" when opened), it has 10 card slots, with 1 clear ID pocket, 2 slip pockets, a pen pocket, and an exterior zippered coin pocket.


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.)
