This listing is for a DOWNLOADABLE PDF pattern only! You are NOT purchasing a completed Pocket Pal Pouch! Be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel and join our Facebook group “Linds Handmade Designs” to show off your creations!


With this purchase you will receive a PDF pattern with full pattern pieces, detailed pictures, step by step instructions and FREE SVG files! (See note below**). 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! 


**Unfortunately we are unable to assist in trouble shooting with each and every cutting machine out there. Some machines auto-resize the pattern pieces and may require you to ungroup them and resize using the 1" test box provided for accuracy.


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.)
