The Domesticated Accordion – new wallet sewing pattern

So I have been rather preoccupied this last couple of months with patterns and pattern testing.

I have not one but two patterns ready to go, but which one to launch first? …well here goes

Today I am launching my new sewing pattern The Worsley Wallet.

I wanted to call it The Wonder Wallet, but I checked on the net and it appears it’s already a thing (Who knew!)

So I had a pole in my tester group between a few different names and virtually everyone voted for the name Worsley. (it’s where I live)


Nope, unfortunately not my house

Anyway, we digress – My main aim for this pattern was to make an accordion wallet that was easy to make on a domestic machine. It’s always a struggle with the amount of layers involved in a wallet if you don’t own an industrial machine, and it puts a heavy tole on our little motors even if you can get through it


So this pattern has been painstakingly developed so you don’t have to fight with your machine. The layers have been engineered to the absolute minimum to enable you to stitch through everything easily.

So here it is:

A beautiful strappy clutch wallet that can be used as a coin purse and phone wallet, or add on a strap and it becomes a striking evening bag, and I found a great new use for strap keepers too !

The Worsley Wallet is perfect for carrying your essentials; it features 6 credit card slots, a zipped change pocket, a pocket for notes and a pocket for your XL phone. A feature flap closes with an ingenious strap keeper fastening method.

With options to add a wrist strap, shoulder or arm chain, this wallet covers all your needs.blu flat chain back2

It’s really quick and easy to make and will make fantastic Christmas presents for half of my family, possibly yours too. (ooh, I better find a way to make a men’s version next then I can sew for everyone this year!)

I hope you love it.

You can get the pattern here.

Let me see your pics #worsleywallet

As ever, a huge thank you to my absolutely fabulous testers.

    I love your Worsley Wallet pattern. So much fun and easy to make. Lots of nooks and crannies for all my cards, money, receipts, etc. Good clear instructions and photos. I’ve had lots of compliments. I will make my next Worsley Wallet in Harris Tweed next time.
