Today is the launch of the newest issue of Making magazine (No. 3 Dots) and I love having a project included once again (see my previous Making contributions here and here). So excited to share this new project with you all today. This is one that I had sketched over and over again in my notebook and was so happy to be able to bring it to life. It’s called the Minimalist Wallet because it’s simple and yet super useful.

I’m so happy to be able to use this wallet myself. I love that it has a large pocket at the back for cash and my phone, a zippered pocket for coins and other items that need secure storing and lastly three spots for cards held vertically (and yes, you can fit a couple cards per slot if needed). I like to keep my wallet as streamlined as possible and this holds all the essentials. I find that if I have a bigger wallet with more little pockets and compartments, things tend to get lost or I forget about what I have. So when I was designing this wallet I kept in mind what I ideally carry on a regular basis, and the Minimalist Wallet was born.

The wallet has a snap closure with two options, either leather or fabric for the snap tab. I really love both options so much! I’m hoping to have a few kits listed for the wallet’s leather/snap option shortly, so stay tuned.

For this pattern, I recommend using a size 24 (sometimes called Line 24) snap:

Tandy Leather (snaps, hand setting tool: setter, anvil, or set w/tool)
Gold Star Tool (snaps, hand setting tool (choose GS-HS#803L-RNG-15mm, press)
Buckleguy.com (snaps, hand setting tool, press)
Snapsource (snaps, hand setting tool: you’ll want the setting tool plus the size 24 adapter) These are best for using with the fabric tab option!
Dritz (snaps, hand setting tool)

Many of these snaps/setters or something similar may be available at your local quilt shop or craft store, so please check there as well!

I hope you’ll enjoy it! The magazine is so beautiful, Carrie and her team have done an amazing job with this magazine. It has over 150 pages of pure goodness, so many great projects of all types and gorgeous inspiring photography. I do have the magazine available for sale in my shop, so be sure to stop by if you’d like to purchase a copy. I’m so proud to be a part of this publication with so many amazing makers.
