Small minimalist bifold Wallet – Sewing Tutorial

**I just wanted to put a remark on 9:33 (zipper panel), if you use print fabric (with right side and the wrong side), after you sew the lining panel, when you open the zipper, the wrong side will show inside the zipper pocket, I had to compromise this to minimize the bulk. If that bothers you, you may use solid fabric for the zipper lining panel (with no right side or wrong side); or add an extra layer of lining, face the right side of the lining to the wrong side of the zipper panel, baste stitch, and then sew the second lining as instructed). Thanks!!

This is a simple, minimalist, yet functional little wallet for you to make.
