I made little wallets for the nieces and nephew as supplemental presents. My nephew’s birthday is this weekend and I like to make all three kids something little in addition to a larger present for the birthday child.
I’ve actually made this particular pattern before and found it very useful. I keep the one I made for myself thrown in my work bag so I can grab it to hold my sunglasses, wallet and phone when grabbing lunch or running errands during the work day.
This one closes with a shell button and has no wrist strap, since it’s meant to be a wallet instead of a bag.
