I just love the Diva Frame Wallet! This is such a fun and easy pattern that uses a metal frame and clasp. The frames come in different sizes and even different finishes. The fabric requirements for this wallet is extremely minimal and the instructions are quick and simple. Let me show you how I made my Diva Frame Wallet and don’t forget to watch the video tutorial too!

Frame Wallet – MATERIALS LIST
- The Diva Frame Wallet pattern by Sew Many Creations
- (2) Fat Quarters of fabric
- one-quarter yard of Pellon Decor Bond 44″w fusible interfacing

- I used the 7.5-inch frame (Gun Metal finish) for this wallet, but the pattern also allows for an 8″ frame as well. These frames come in different finishes. Here are some options for the 7.5″ frames:

Assembling the pattern
I must admit that I changed the pattern a smidge by adding a lining to the zipper pocket. The lining piece measuremnt is 8″ x 7″. It was an easy addition and you can see this in the video footage below…
