ABOUT
This is a modest and simple wallet.  You don't realize how easy it is to make until you actually make one!  There are no zippers, or card slots to make. Instead it uses an accordion insert. It comes together fast. Yet with the provided methods and templates, it finishes very professional looking. (See video links below.)

COMPARING THE RAW-EDGE PATTERN TO THE TURNED-EDGE STYLE
The "Raw-Edge" version of the pattern is suited to vinyl or leather. It is recommended for confident-beginner to intermediate makers.  The "Turned-Edge" pattern is geared to leather-crafters and is recommended for intermediate makers. While the body-silhouette is similar in both patterns, the body piece is shaped slightly different. However, the accents from both patterns can be used interchangeably on either pattern. Below is a side-by-side comparison.
