Four pocket wallet perfect for credit cards and cash.
This is a quick and simple wallet to make. Using laminated cotton or oilcloth means you don't have to worry about fabric fraying and the elastic tie is an easy way to keep everything held together.
You can use regular quilting cotton but you'll need to interface each piece.

Layer the pockets onto the inner panel - small pocket on top of large pocket on the short ends of the panel, right sides facing up.
Because laminated cotton and oilcloth show pin marks it is important to not use pins. I used tape that I peeled off after sewing. Binder clips, paper clips or quilter's clips work well, too.
Using a basting stitch sew the pockets to the panel 1/4" from the edge all the way around.
Fold all sides of the inner and outer panel under by 1/4". The basting stitches you made on the inner panel will make a good guide for folding.
Pin the two panels together and stitch around three sides leaving one short side open.
With so many layers, naturally it can get bulky. To make things easier try using a walking foot or at least guiding the fabric under your foot. Be sure to use a fresh heavy duty needle.
