crisscross credit card wallet

I have had fun making
CrissCross Credit Card Wallets
by Gena Cunha at Craftsy

You can download the free pattern from the link listed below.

I did make two changes.
I only put the fusible interfacing on the 
cover and the four squares
not on the other inner pieces.

I added the first snap (female) to the cover before sewing any pieces together.
{I also put the snap in backwards one time so be careful}

I was able to make four wallets from two fat quarter pieces.

Hint: The cover and inside pieces are about 1/8" larger than 4 1/2 ".
That makes a difference when fitting in the credit cards.
I made one at just 4 1/2 and it was a too tight.
