I drew my sister-in-law Mere for Christmas this year, who wanted a wallet–something modern, something neutral, something functional. I based my color scheme off these shoes, which I knew she really liked. I made up the wallet pattern, because I couldn’t find a tutorial for a bi-fold with vertical card holders. The leather detail really makes the wallet, if you ask me. When I started looking for leather, I called the local Tandy’s Leather shop, and asked how much they sold their scraps for. I think she quoted me at something ludicrous like my First Born (it was $15 per 8″ square, I think). I decided to swing by a local leather shop that I remembered driving by, and was thrilled when I stopped by and found bins and bins of scraps for $2 per square foot. He gave me three 6″ squarish pieces for $1. SOLD!!
