Stitch Summer 2012

Snappy Wallet The Stitch summer 2012 issue has quick-to-stitch projects that will leave you plenty of time for fun in the sun! I designed the Snappy Wallet on page 70 so that I’d be able to carry keys, cash, my library card, and other essentials when I don’t want to lug around a heavy handbag or backpack. The two-section version has plenty of pockets to corral coins, credit cards, and paper money. For lighter loads, make a single-section wallet. To carry, just slip a finger through the fabric loop or add a binder ring to quickly clip the wallet to your belt loop.

Two version of the Snappy WalletAlthough it’s an easy project, there are a lot of little steps, so please read the instructions carefully. There’s a lot going on, especially in Step 3. I’ve expanded that step and added some illustrations in this pdf.

Fabrics from Dear Stella’s Mimosa collection.

    • Hi, Marlene,
      Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your note. Something went awry with the comments, and I didn’t find your post until now. Hopefully, you’ve already found the pdf link in the post above. Unfortunately, I don’t have illustrations for Step 4, but please contact me if you haven’t gotten it figured out.

  2. Hi, Debb,
    I’m so glad the pdf helped! Step 3 isn’t hard, but is kind of difficult to explain with just words. I hope the illustrations help.
    Take care,

  3. Hi Missy! I am so glad I found your site. I have been trying to make the snappy wallet from the Stitch issue and step 3 had me pretty confused. (I am a fairly new sewer). I told my bf last night that if I had pictures to go with the directions, it would help. So to find this pdf was a fabric savior! I was tempted to just scrap it! Thanks for the additional help!!

    • Can’t wait to try the iPhone case tutorial. I just got an iPhone rclnetey and don’t have anything to carry it in! Happy to start following you on FB and I’m not far from Sugar Grove either!Random fact about me: I have a degree in Air Traffic Control that I use to be a stay-at-home-mom and sew. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
