Smaller, but with many features
This pattern looks like a mine version of the bigger Complice wallet pattern.
It’s smaller, but offers 2 sizes nonetheless.
The medium size allows a French passport to be slid inside one of the pockets. That’s why we chose the medium size (15 cm by 10.5 cm).
There’s a coin pocket closed by a zipper, 3 card slots, a plastic flap and patch pockets.
You can put a snap on a tab to maintain it closed.
Sparkling blue Compere
I had everything in my stash so my daughter shopped there!
Since the main fabric was stiff, i didn’t interface it. The lining was interfaced with G700. I had some blue Kam snap, I cut a zipper I already had, and I also had some clear plastic on hand.
The size of this compere is better for her, but she also kept her Complice!
Here are the two wallets side by side:
Compere is quicker to sew than Complice. They do not have the same goal, in my opinion, Complice being more “grown-up'” and accomodates more cards+ a checkbook.
Tips for sewing the clear plastic flap
Clear plastic is not easy to manipulate!
Here are a few tips:
- slide some fabric scrap / silk paper underneath, to the stitch line, to prevent the plastic to stick to the machine.
- No unpicking!
- If your plastic is too stiff or creased, use your hairdryer. No ironing!
