Tired of those awful cardboards folders the chemist sometime provides?
Make your own with a few small pieces of fabric, make two, His and Hers.
Choose your fabric and cut…
Main piece … 9½ “ x 6½ “ – if you have a patterned fabric, say flowers, you may wish to place the biggest flower on the front.
Inside Pocket … 9½” x 6” and
Lining … 9½” x 6½”
Inside pocket and lining can be the same or contrasting fabric.
Lightweight pellon 8½” x 5½”
Iron on interfacing … 8½ x 5”
In the picture above from left to right …
Main piece with lightweight pellon, inside pocket with iron on interfacing and lining. Fold the inside pocket in half lengthways.
Sandwich pieces ready for stitching …
Main piece right side up (and fabric right way up if directional or patterned).
Inside pocket to the ‘bottom’ raw edges together and lining wrong side up.
Start stitching at the bottom with a ¼” seam, stitch all around and leave a 2” gap for turning.
Clip corners and turn through.
Press the opening seams to the inside.
Topstitch 1/8” in from the edge all round.
Press and pop in your prescriptions.
The wallet left was the first one I made and did not think about the placement of the flowers and as you can see the lovely roses are on the back of the wallet!
I cut out two at the same time, this time with the lovely roses on the front, only thing is they are upside down!
This one is mine to use.
