Men's Bi-fold Leather Wallet

Jun 2, 2014

Hubs had a birthday recently - and I wanted to share the leather wallet I made for him with you.  He's pretty particular about his wallet.  I don't blame him.  I know I'm the same way about mine.  He's a bi-fold man, tried and true.
I wanted to gift him a wallet with the leftover leather I had from this bag.  I figured out the dimensions for his favorite bi-fold and made sure each side had 2 sleeves.  And just because I couldn't sew something without fabric - I cut into a fresh 1/2 yard of this Katie Jump Rope print because it was the PERFECT accent for this wallet.  I tried my best to explain to him the rarity of this print - and how much I must really love him to cut into it for 2 tiny pieces.

It's just simple and plain on the outside.  Nothing to call too much attention to it.  Not sure he's up for explaining to anybody at work that his wife made him a wallet.  Well, I guess most of them know how crazy I am with the sewing anyway...... :)

It was good to use up these scraps!
Do you sew with leather?
Do you have any other small projects to make with leather scraps?
Any interest in a tute on this wallet?  It's super simple and best of all, you don't need to finish the raw edges of the leather, so it whips up quickly.

  2. I love the wallet. I would love to see a tutorial for it. It is so hard to find things to make for the men. I know the feeling about your hubby sharing his new wallet with everyone. You might be surprised. Mine will talk about the crazy stuff I sew and do at work from time to time.

  4. Nice! I'd love to make some of these for all the guys in my family this Christmas. It's always so hard to find things to make for men. Yes, please, on the tutorial!

  5. I can see making one of these for myself. I've nearly worn out the fabric "card carrier" that I use for just the essentials when I ride my motorcycle.

  6. Awesome!! Leather scares me, so I think it's super awesome that you just whipped this up for your man :) Perfect choice for a little fabric accent as well, it's nice and manly enough!
