So if you have looked around my blog you already know that my son loves Adventure Time (Birthday, Shoes, crocheted figures and Shirt ). So it was an easy decision on what to put on a wallet I was making him, Finn.
You will need:
7 inch zipper
9.5 by 5.25 interfacing
9.5 by 5.25 white felt
9.25 by 5.25 white cotton
2 pieces of 3.5 by 5.25 white cotton
5 inch piece of white Velcro
oval piece of flesh colored felt, iron on interfacing ironed on the back
Iron and sew the face on first- on to the felt, between 2.5 inches from the top and 3.5 inches up from the bottom. Then sew the felt to the long piece of cotton, right sides together, leave an opening so you can flip. Also sew the two smalled pieces of white cotton together.
Ok- now this is where I discovered my mistake. I was making this wallet for my son to store his "Monkey Money" from the orthodontist in. "Monkey Money" aren't small coins, the are large wooden coins and the coin section I was making was only going to be 3.5 inches high and couldn't store the already 10 coins he had, not to mention any more he was going to get.
So if you are making a small pocket and zippered pouch, continue on with the small piece of white cotton fabric. Sew one side of the zipper to the side with the face and sew the other side of the zipper to the small cotton piece. Next sew a piece of white Velcro onto the bottom of the felt piece with the face.
So here it is with the bigger piece. Still sew the pieces together with the zipper in between.
Fold the cotton piece over. Sew up the two sides and cut the zipper.
Also sew the other piece of Velcro onto the top of the longer piece.
When sewing with the smaller piece leave the top unsewn so you can put bills or ID cards in the unzippered pocket this created.
And you are done! Mine has a pocket big enough for all those wooden coins.
But is still small enough to fit in his pocket.
And has a cute little Finn face!
