Well my next project will be making a wallet. I decided to make one out of paper and dental floss first to discover my pitfalls and learn to sew.
Created a template by measuring my current wallet . I guess this would be called a 10 pocket wallet? 6 card slots 2 money slots and 2 slots under the card slots in the front. I used 10 stitches per inch but think i will scale this back for the leather but haven’t decided yet.

There were not many problems other than keeping holes aligned but half way though i decided to put in some temporary stitches to keep things where i needed them. Clamps or a small vice help and also a set of pliers and a thimble. I also went back and double stitched the corners and flex points.
Next step will be to modify this design and learn to cut leather on the GF. Picked up some scrap pieces from a tack shop in town super cheap to practice with as well as some proper thread and needles.
