The Workman’s Wallet

The Workman’s Wallet is a raw edge project designed to be made from fabrics that do not fray, such as cork, leather, vinyl etc.

This is a quick sew men’s wallet featuring a notes pocket, two slip pockets, 3 card pockets, a coin pocket (or replace with another bank of card slots instead), an ID Pocket and an additional slip pocket or card pocket.


You will be surprised how fast and easy these whip up. It is also suitable for sewing a home sewing machine. PLUS who say’s it has to be only for a man? These wallets can look mighty pretty and useable for a lady, too! As some of the testers show below.

With the included video tutorial, you won’t have any problems making this wallet at all. Of course, if watching a video isn’t your thing, the pattern comes with my usual full comprehensive instructions with lots of photos. Full pattern pieces are included as well as cutting measurements for those of you who like to cut with a mat and ruler.

PLUS, it comes with SVG files which have been tested using Brother ScanNCut, Sillhouette and Cricut. A Projector File is included too!

It really is hard to stop at just one. It’s the perfect sew and sell men’s wallet, too. Taking minimal supplies and time. PLUS, they simply look great and are practical too!

Finished size (closed and unfilled):
Approx. 11.8cm (4 5/8”) W X 10cm (4”) H X 2cm (3/4”) D.

I know I sound like a broken record but I would like to say a HUGE great BIG thank you, as always, to all my wonderful testers and Proofreaders. You ROCK! It would not be possible do this job without a great team of testers!
