UPDATE: The pattern for my Cash Envelope Wallet can be found here! Have fun making it! Send me pictures!
In case you missed my last blog post, I'll bring you up to speed. Joshua and I are starting the Dave Ramsey cash envelope budgeting system. (If you don't know what it is, you should look it up! I won't go into detail here.) So a few days ago, I made a few fabric envelopes to keep our cash separated in different categories. This morning I got a request from a fellow 'Dave Ramsey Budgeter' for fabric envelopes and a wallet to hold them all. I got to looking for a tutorial for a wallet, but I couldn't find any that would work for this project. So instead! I made a brave move and decided to make up a pattern on my own. Let me just say...it sounds a lot easier than it really is. It took me 3-4 hours to finish the wallet, but I'm extremely pleased with the end result!
One side of the wallet has 4 pockets for cards, and a slip pocket underneath. The other side of the wallet has an elastic band that holds the envelopes in place, but allows for easy removal in case I don't want to carry the whole wallet somewhere. It has a velcro strap closure.
Honestly, this wallet has many imperfections (which I'm sure you can see), so I have several things I want to change about the next one. But overall, I love the concept, and I love that I accomplished a new challenge! How fun!
