Materials: ( I used )
Fabric (Taffeta type)
Felt
Velcro tape
Scissors
Sewing needle
Sewing thread
Sewing machine
Measuring tape & ruler
Tailor's chalk

Note: The size of this wallet is just your option. Wanna make bigger one? Just change the measurements and cut out bigger pieces. I suggest light, strong and durable fabric type for this pattern.

Cut 2 pieces of fabric and 1 piece of felt for the outer part:
13 cm x 22 cm (all same size)

Put the felt in between 2 pieces of cloth and sew around. The felt piece just make your outer wallet thicker. Then divide into 2/2/1 and top stitch as following image. The small section will be your wallet's flap.
