Stitch Swap--Pirate's Treasure Wallet Pattern

Stephanie from Swoodson Says organized a Stitch Swap for a group of us sewing bloggers.
I received a lovely package in the mail from Amy from Friends Stitched Together!
 
 
Amy sent me a package for my boys--pirate fabric.
But, instead of just sending one yard as the plan was, she sent a piece of coordinating fabric and a spool of yellow thread as well.
Now, the hard part was thinking of what to make for my boys so that at least the older two could have something made out of the fabric since they both *loved* the pirate ships!
 
I had recently made my daughter a purse which she carries to Church.
The boys decided that they needed a wallet so they could take money to Church. 
After searching for a wallet pattern and not finding anything that I (they) liked, I decided I'd just make a pattern.

I made two right away.
It's a trifold wallet with a good number of pockets!
 
 
There is a pocket for bills, a pleated zipper pocket for coins, a vinyl pocket for ID, and three card pockets!
 
 
The boys love them, and have started helping my husband work on the farm to earn some more money to put into them!

 
You can buy a copy of the pattern here!
 
Make sure to check out all the other stops on the Stitch Swap!
