Taught by bookhou
Learn how to make a super stylish (and super functional!) wallet using a single sheet of washable paper. Arounna Khounnoraj of Bookhou begins by sharing her technique for painting a custom surface design onto the Kraft-Tex paper. Then, through a few simple folds and machine-sewn seams, she shows you how to turn the flat sheet into a multi-pocket wallet. Simply add a snap at the end to complete the look. This project can easily be done on a standard sewing machine at home. Though it has the durability of leather, the washable paper is much easier to work with and holds up over time.
