I made some changes to the pattern. The flap was one of them. I used Peltex in the whole piece instead of just in the trim, which I didn't use. It gives the wallet strength in the flap and will stay straight when using the shoulder strap. I also used a tuck and catch closure and I love the professional look. I came upon some of these closures and will be using them for these wallets. I was using magnetic snaps. Some people are afraid of the magnetic snaps because of fear that the magnetism will mess up your cards. I've been using my wallet for quite some time and I have never had any trouble with cards or cellphone interference. The magnetism in the clasps is to small for causing trouble.
Here are other two wallets made with the same pattern and doing the same modifications. These two were made using home decorator weight cotton fabric.
All three are available in my Etsy Shop: www.NormasBagBoutique.etsy.com
This pattern is awesome. I love to use it and the final product is beautiful and very functional. I've been using the first one I sew and I love all it's features. Mine doesn't have the straps so these with the straps are much better for added versatility.
