This is an Easy Wallet Pattern and wallet sewing tutorial. This fabric card holder tutorial is for a small wallet sewing pattern and also makes a great DIY coin purse. A perfect Cricut maker sewing project for beginners.
Ever since we’ve moved to Aussie, it’s like I don’t need my CHUNKY wallet anymore as I don’t carry cash and just have to pay using a card. So, it was time for me to sew a new tiny little wallet that’s large enough for cards and some coins.
Luckily, Cricut Design space had an easy wallet pattern for me to try out.
It’s a super simple and easy project which makes it perfect for beginners and will also make a perfect gift for literally anyone. It can also be sewn in a jiffy!

Now, if you’re wondering what is Cricut Maker, here’s some info for you.
What is the Cricut Maker?
Cricut Maker is the ultimate cutting machines designed to cut literally anything like fabric, denim, fleece, interfacing, leather, cork and so much more! If you’re wondering whether Cricut Maker is right for you or not, check out “Is Cricut Maker Actually Good for Sewists“.
Why Use Cricut Maker for this Wallet Sewing Project
2 reasons why I LOVE Cricut Maker projects.
One, I don’t have to use my brain to cut things out. I just need to cut a 12″x12″ square manually, and the rest is done by the mighty magical Cricut Maker.
Two, Cricut Maker also MARKS the fabric panels for ya, including the marks to attach the snaps and tabs. How cool is that! No more wasting time measuring the pieces to attach the tabs and snaps.
I just LOVE this cutting machine and I highly recommend it to all the sewists who like to sew small stuff.
