A few weeks a go I ask Ken if he would like a handmade wallet, I though the one he has was not good for the normal use he gave to it. And I really wanted to make him something :)

I used some leftover from his handmade wedding vest and raw color linen.
I also made him a matching checkbook cover just for fun, I wanted it to be very simple and lineal.



Here are in a detailed view:

I wanted to share the process and make tutorials of them but I changed the size several times while sewing, so I think I will make a wallet and checkbook cover tutorial but with just one size, once I make them for me :)

Ken's favorite feature is the ID pocket and the fact that now he has space for tons of cards :)

    Seriously, there is nothing you can’t do. :)

    Just sell the wallets, so I can get Josh a new one. He carries an old stuffy leather one, and it’s just not fitting, seeing how we’re not old stuffy people. He’d love this.

    You should blur out your address and check routing number because bad people will steal it and cause you trouble otherwise!!

    Beautiful wallet though :)

      I blurred everything before posting but the image looked like I could almost read it, I RE-do it just to add more blur to it, thank you!
