Sew-made: A zip around boxy wallet

Hi! Everyone!
This is a zip around boxy wallet, a design inspired by hand made design in Thailand.
I am not sure she design it but she sell the pattern template and tutorial in Thailand. I tried to buy the pattern and tutorial from her, but she turned me down. She even lied to me that she do not sell or offer to sell the pattern template/tutorial. Sighs. I don't read Thai but I can read pictures, you know!

The reason why I want to buy the pattern is that I can learn more about bag making technique which was very limited in Malaysia. I love learning from my fellow Thai friends because their technique and design are far more advance from what we have here. It's sad, right? People in Malaysia are not really fond of sewing and crafts, not now...maybe another 10 years, perhaps?

So, here is the more improved design, after I bought another pattern from one of my fellow Thai friend, 
Ms. Nok. She has been a huge help in making my hand made better and sturdier. 
Thank you Ms. Nok! 

This zip around boxy wallet is different from what you seen in the hand made market, you can see the different at the zip where there is binding on each zip, unlike the normal design zip around wallet, the zip itself is attach to the body of the wallet.

I add a detachable strap so that it is easier to carry and to have the safe feel when carrying one. This is a huge wallet that can fits your phone, contains 16 slots for cards, a divider and a zip compartment.

The bindings are finished with hand stitch.
