Today I am sharing a handmade gift idea that I am really excited to give this Christmas. Last year I decided that I was going to make as many gifts as I could this year and now I am sharing some of those handmade gifts with you. Today I am sharing the Kristine ID Wallet. Yes, this is one of my own patterns, but the Kristine ID Wallet is also one of my favorite gifts to give!
The Kristine ID Wallet is perfect for anyone who needs an access badge at work – medical professionals, teachers, government employees, military, any corporate employee, etc. It will easily hold an access badge plus a little cash for lunch and some business cards or credit cards. The Kristine ID Wallet can be worn as a wristlet or as a lanyard - directions for both options are included in the pattern.
This Christmas my niece will be receiving one of these from me (I am hoping she isn’t reading this!). My niece is 15 and will be getting her driver’s license in a few months. The Kristine ID Wallet is perfect for a new driver. It holds all the essentials in a compact form and it has the much preferred lanyard that the teens love – I think they like the lanyard just because it is a fun way to swing your keys and wallet as you walk! My college daughters love their Kristine ID Wallets to hold the key cards that they use to get into their dorm/apartment. Once again, college girls love the lanyard option as well as the wristlet option.
The Kristine ID Wallet is quick to make – I can make one in about 1 ½ hours. It doesn’t require much fabric; less than 1/2 yard of fabric and a small piece of clear vinyl. You can purchase the Kristine ID Wallet pattern and find all the fabric requirements and other items needed to make this wallet in the description of the pattern in my Etsy Shop, in my Craftsy Pattern Shop or in the "Shop" section on the Uniquely Michelle Website.
On one side, The Kristine ID Wallet has a clear ID pocket. It also has a zipper pocket perfect for change and cash. The thing that makes the Kristine ID Wallet unique is the cute envelope flap that covers two card pocket slots on one side.
This wallet is really perfect for holding just the essentials when you don’t want to lug a purse around. I like to use my Kristine ID Wallet for sporting events and quick trips to the grocery store.
Now I just need to decide which of these two wallets my niece would like better and wrap it up!
