Old Dickies Jeans = New Wallet
I had this pair of Dickies jeans in my fabric stash for about 4 years. The only thing wrong with them was that they were missing a button, and, no longer fit J. He saw the needles and pins holder (a couple posts down) that I made for myself, and wanted me to make something for him. So, he chose out these jeans and an old camo bandanna, and now they are a wallet! Right now he just uses a small binder clip- he does not like anything big or bulky, and having to actually open something up to get money out would be horrible! So this is very simple, with just a pocket on front for essential cards and a pocket on the back for cash, receipts, or whatever. I have to be honest... the first wallet did not come out as planned, so it is now a carrier for K's tiny beloved transformer! Luckily there was another Dickies patch on the other pant leg, and this wallet turned out much better. I hope he likes it!
