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)
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.
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.

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