Timon, my godson and children’s wallet pattern

Timon p6

8 years ago I became the godmother of a cheerful, lively and very sweet godson that was named “Timon”. And as is the case for a lot of 8-year olds, money is still something fascinating. Timon likes counting his notes and coins and then puts them away safely.

I made him a children’s wallet like in the good old days. I had one with a veclro closure. I remember the sound it made when you opened it. While I was at it, I made a sewing pattern so that others can also make the wallet for their children or as a gift.

Since not all of us like the crackling sound of velcro, I also made a version with snaps..

I found some great testers that made some useful suggestions that were added to the pattern. Here’s just a selection of the wonderful wallets the made:

Many thanks to Amanda Dortch for checking the English version of the pattern.

    Hi, the pattern can be purchased in my shop but it’s only available in Dutch at the moment. I made an English translation but the translation should be checked first by a native english speaking person. If you’re interested in giving me your feedback about the English version, let me know. You will receive the pattern in return for your feedback.

    Hi Peggy,
    I would be happy to read over your English version of the little wallet pattern and help you with that. However, I don’t think I would be interested in the pattern. I just printed off the little zippered pouch pattern, so I’ll take that as payment.
