I did a pattern a while ago about this passport and card holder and realized I never filmed a video showing how to make it. In addition to the pdf pattern an acrylic template is also available now in the shop.

There is a bit more hand stitching involved and you will need a zipper, preferably with 3mm teeth rather than 5mm. I did not have any bottom nor top metal stoppers for the zipper so I had to replace them by leather bits,...
The bi-fold wallet is probably the most common type wallet for men, I bet pretty every men already owned at least one (if not dozens) like this one in their life.
