In just a few days I'll be traveling to Japan. It's been about nine or ten years since I was last there, so I'm pretty excited to return for a full ten days of temple hopping, people watching, and mountain climbing. To commemorate my trip, I decided to whip up a wallet that actually fits my passport. You also walk around with a lot of coins in Japan, so this has a nice sized change pocket, which will come in handy.
I chose the "A Girl's Best Friend" wallet from Jenna Lou Designs. I picked this up in Minneapolis last year, but never got around to making it. And I had just enough of this fabulous vintage remnant to make the wallet.
It was pretty easy to construct. According to her website, there was a misprint in the instructions, but I didn't have any trouble fitting the whole thing together. I wish that I'd used fusible interfacing, but I couldn't find any in my sewing cabinet and was too lazy to go buy some. I probably should have used a snap instead of velcro, but the velcro will work just fine.
