The Workman’s Wallet PDF Pattern

(4 customer reviews)



Watch the trailer for more info:

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!

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!

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

Raw Edge



*Non Fraying Fabric such as Cork, Vinyl, Faux Leather or Leather: 91cm W X 30cm H (36” W X 12 H”)
*Clear Vinyl for ID Pocket: 9cm X 6.7cm (3 ½” X 2 58”)

*1 X 12mm (1/2”) Snap for the Coin Pocket
*Permanent Fabric Glue: I use a fast-drying, permanent fabric glue so I don’t need to wait so long before stitching – The one I use is “Quick Dry Adhesive by Couture Creations”. It dries sufficiently for me to stitch within 10 mins. I use this for cork, vinyl and leather; however, you can choose any glue suitable for your chosen material.
Tester recommended glues are: Fabri-Tac, Cre-Ation, Fevicol All Fix, Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue, Sika Contact Cement.

OPTIONAL – Edge Finishing Products or Glue for sealing the edges.

    Great wallet, excellent attention to detail, wonderfully detailed instructions. Quick to make. I thought I would only make one but before I knew it three were finished

    Wow what a great wallet. Follow along with the video and it is very clear as to how it goes together. Just take note of Chris’s suggestions of fabric to use, I made a mistake a couldn’t finish because of thickness so just had to make another one!
