disk wallet
free plans: how to make a
Disk Wallet
Basic Description Here is a plan for a simple project: a wallet that holds six compact disks or digital video disks. It is an interesting juxtaposition of old and new, but this fabric holder will certainly be a welcome retreat from those plastic jewel cases. The design we describe below will hold six disks, but we will describe how to hold two or three times this amount in the review section at the end of this plan.
Materials Fabric, thread. A complete material list is provided below.
Tools Sewing machine (or sewing needle), scissors, measuring tape. A complete tool list is provided below.
Cost The plan itself is free! Estimated cost of materials: $1

Material List

Item Qty. Description
#1 1 durable fabric. A 17" x 19 1/2" (43 x 49cm) piece is required for each wallet. Note that 1/2" is given as an allowance for seams on all edges of the fabric: after seaming, the fabric should be 16" x 18 1/2" (41 x 47cm)
#2 - sewing thread

This project is remarkably simple if you have access to, and are familiar with a sewing machine. If not, you can perform the sewing by hand, but you will need quite a bit more patience.

Tool List

sewing machine, or sewing needle
measuring tape
recommended: iron for making seams

We recommend that you read through the entire plan and especially the design considerations section before acquiring/assembling all of the requisite tools and materials. There are several options with this project, and it is most prudent to be fully informed of them before making design decisions.
