Her wallet one year ago… I love the fabric. I still do, but I admit it was too thin for use as a wallet. Even with interfacing.
And as the fabric is not coated, it got pretty dirty.
I thought the button closure was not the best idea too, at least not for a 8 year old.
Note how the card slots are pretty new and clean? It’s because they’ve never been used. The only card she needs to carry is a student ID. So there is really no need for card slots.
Improvements made this year. Waterproof fabric for the exterior. Velcro enclosure. Much easier for kids.
Transparent card slot for ID. Upholstery weight fabric for interior. Together with the laminated cotton, both fabrics are sturdy enough to use without interfacing. I also have too much polka dotted bias tape stashed away so I used it. I made it small so that it will fit easily into her pocket.
