Project 7: Oilcloth Wallet

We have reached the final project – the oilcloth wallet. This project is fun to make, and the inside pockets can easily be customized depending on what you carry in your wallet (cash and checkbooks or credit cards).

While this project may have a few more pieces and steps, all of the same basic oilcloth sewing principles you learned in the prior week still apply. You will once again get great tips on how to work with this fabric and see how easy it can be to sew with.

Be sure to post photos of your finished oilcloth wallets to the Facebook group page! And I want to say a very big thank you to everyone for joining us for this project!

    Two off the pattern pieces are not printing properly. I even had a friend try to print it from her computer with the same results. Any advice?

      Hi Mickeysews. Try opening the pattern in a Word document (right click on the file name and select Open With > Word) and switch the Orientation to Landscape for the Lining Piece and Pocket pattern pieces. Hope this helps! Thank you, Hallie NSC Video Membership

    On project 7 – I’m putting in the magnetic disk, however, mine needs to be sewn around. What do you recommend or should I just purchase a new one?

      You could purchase a new one. Or, you could see how the manufacturer’s instructions recommend inserting it. I have actually never seen one that is a sew-in variety. You should be able to sew it in place at the same time during the assembly process that you would be inserting the tab backed kind.
