My version of the Lunch Money Cuff


When I ran across the lunch money cuff  tutorial in Sew Can She archives by Christie from Lemon Squeezy, I knew two boys at my house needed these. Not necessarily for lunch, but for going to the store. They have their wallets, baggies, envelopes, or whatever they seem to have their money in at the time. But guess who ends up carrying them around in their purse? Yep, me. With these wallets THEY could now be in charge of carrying their own money.


Christie's version is super cute. I needed these quick, so I decided on a few shortcuts to make my wallets a bit faster. Instead of an inlaid zipper, I went with a zipper across the top of the wallet. Basically, I was going to make a zipper pouch with hook and loop tape on the sides.

If you need help putting a zipper in or sewing the pouch, I did a easy zipper pouch tutorial that you can find in the Sew Can She archives that has loads of pictures. The wallet fabric to cut is 8.5" x 3", just like Christie's tutorial.


Once the pouch was sewn, I sewed a piece of hook and loop tape on the sides of the wallet. It was ready to take to the store.


If you have not checked out the Sew Can She Tutorials, you are missing out. Each day a fabulous tutorial comes to your inbox. I am always amazed at the ideas folks come up with.

Have a great day,
