Looks great. Will probably be making them to match the Lazy Girl purses and totes as soon as my patterns arrive. GREAT IDEA MAKING MORE THAN ONE OF THEM.... One for store cards. One for charge cards and one for library cards and the like. That's really called ORGANIZATION!

Very nice Wonder Wallet! I love your fabric choices. I've made quite a few of these wallets, but have yet to review them. I hand sew a decorative button on the front to hide the stitching from the velcro. I use these wallets for travel or when I need to lighten my purse for shopping. I do like Skymom's idea to make a few of these to throw certain categories of shopping cards in to keep one's wallet and purse more organized.

Skymom, that's such a great idea. Things I don't need to use everyday like insurance cards and such... I can totally put away in my purse in another WW. Plus that gives me an excuse to make another one. Great idea!

THis was a very helpful review--thanks! I have the same overstuffage problem with my current purchased wallet. I'm thinking I could make 2-3 of these Wonder Wallets and put different cards in each. I know that sounds strange, but I'd almost rather have a couple of wallets in coordinating fabrics than one that's exploding with all my stuff!

Fabulous project, very useful too. I wonder if an adjustable length strap (detachable perhaps) might make this perfect for say trips to the zoo with the kids when just a few id cards and (lots of) cash are needed. Hmm... summer vacation is coming up. Thanks for the review, quick to sew, so we're justified for adding it to our project list!

You know, I'm carrying around all my cards rubber-banded together in a pocket in my purse right now, so this looks like a winner! Thanks for the great review. I love your site, too, Deepika. This has given me as much pleasure as anything I can think of for quite some time. Thank you. :o)

This is absolutely adorable. I didn't know I needed to make a wallet, but I've loved all the Lazy Girl patterns I've tried so far and this looks really useful in addition to being cute. I love your striped fabric. Nice job.

Nice job! I hadn't noticed this pattern before. I think your version is more engaging.

Linda, thanks for the kind words about the site. Regarding the pen icon, please read this on the help page.

Very nice, I love that purse and the wallet is great also. And thank you for this wonderful site...I have done a few reviews and am fairly new...but keep up the great work. Not probably the place to ask this but why do my replies always have a little pen behind them...or is that something only I can see because I wrote it?

Cute wallet. I just bought this pattern and look forward to making. Might make it for some nieces/nephews for Xmas and put in some cash. Instead of using sew on velcro, what about using Velcro's Fabric Fusion? It is iron on and is very sturdy. I have used it and love this stuff. There was a review done on this product . This is the link: I have seen the product at Hancock's and even Walmart!

Cute little wallet! But boy did you stuff it!

How cute, Deepika! I love seeing pics of the little wallet all stuffed.

Good job, I like your fabric choice. I think it still looks good full. Why do we all need so many cards?

Great wallet, and yours actually has cash in it. Mine never seems to. ;-)

Nice wallet and I love AB's fabric. I have not made a wonder wallet, yet. I have a RTW cloth wallet (American Tourister) that has a 1x4 inch strap sewn to the outside back and attaches w velcro to the outside front ( strap is straight in back & rounded at front). Strap really works when the walllet is overstuffed.
