Step 1: 

First we are going to create a 60" strap. Take one 20-inch long piece of duct tape (A) and fold into thirds creating a fold over strip. Next you take another 20" piece in different accent color, or same (your choice), and add on to the first piece by placing about 1-inch inward in the center and folding sticky ends over creating a seal (B). Do this again with a third piece. You are left with one 60-inch long strand (C) your strap.

Step 2: 

Next, make your wallet. I pre-made an 8" x 9" piece of duct tape fabric in my base color (mustache). Fold that piece in half. Next fold in half again so you have another crease showing you the center. Take your pocket fabric in an accent color (I pre-made this, ad it's 4" x 3") and place inside. To seal this pocket on one end, take a 1" thick strip of base-color and place along the edge of pocket, half on and half off.

Step 3: 

Flip over your base wallet and fold down the other sticky side, sealing in one edge of your pocket.

Step 4: 

We are making 5 pockets, so I pre-cut three 4" pieces in one accent color and two in another. Take two of the 4" long pieces and place sticky side to sticky side, leaving about 1/4" room on one end. Fold over the other end. (Do the same with remaining four pocket pieces) Place the first pocket piece down on second half of wallet, lined-up with the first pocket square you created, sticky side down.

Step 5: 

Flip down the first pocket rectangle you attached and leaving about 1/2" room attach the next (A) You will do the same process for the remaining pieces (B-C) until you are left with one side of the wallet filled with your five pockets (D) (Tip: Remember which side of the wallet is the bottom)

Step 6: 

Seal the edges. Take a piece of one-inch duct tape in your base color, and run directly down the center of the wallet, sealing both the end of the pocket, as well as one egde of the card-pockets (A). Next take another piece of duct tape and run along the second edge of the card-pockets, half on and half off the base wallet (B)

Step 7: 

Flip the whole wallet over, and press down the sticky end sealing the edge up. Use your exacto knife to trim any excess pieces of tape.

Step 8: 

Now seal your change-pocket. Take a 1/2" piece of duct tape in your base color and place along the bottom edge of your change pocket. This way you keep your coins from falling out. Use your X-Acto knife to trim excess.

Step 9: 

Your basic wallet is now done. Again feel free to use any other type of wallet from my previous videos for this project. Decide which side will have your flap. Flip over your wallet, mark your center and place your pre-made 4" x 2.5" piece of duct tape fabric on the back-side of your change-pocket area. Overlap by about 1/4" and seal with a piece of base-colored duct tape.

Step 10: 

Flip over the wallet and seal the front piece with another strip of base-color. Trim excess with X-Acto knife.

Step 11: 

Now create a little tongue so the money inside your wallet is nice and secure. Take your pre-made accent color duct tape strip (6 " x 1/2" ) and fold over, just like you did the card pockets, leaving a small piece of sticky end. Trim any excess with X-Acto knife.

Step 12: 

Attach this below where your flap is, on the opposite end, sticky side down.

Step 13: 

Now it's time to attach your fabulous strap. First you want to take two small scrap pieces of base color to hold down the strap ends (A), Next take a larger piece across the top to really secure (B). To secure the tongue closer, I used yet another piece of base-colored duct tape (C) and lastly, I attached the velcro on both the flap and the tongue pieces to close the wallet and hold everything together (D) (Tip: make sure not to flip the strap when attaching)

Step 14: 

Trim a nice round edge on the flap and tongue closure if you like as a finishing touch.

Step 15: 

All done and ready to go! This sporty yet stylish wallet purse is sure to turn heads, don't forget to mention where you learned how to make it, and share the joy by teaching someone else too :)
