Denim Wrist Wallet

A handy wrist wallet for walkers or joggers to hold cash, keys, and ID.


Approximate Time: 30-60 min.


  • denim scraps
  • zipper
  • scissors
  • sewing machine and thread
  • steam iron


  1. Determine the size you want for your wrist wallet and cut the 2 pieces out of denim.
  2. Sew a zipper on one end of a piece.
  3. Sew the hook and loop tape to opposite sides of the denim pieces.
  4. If desired, sew both pieces together first, pinning right sides together, and measure around the wrist to determine placement of the hook and loop tape.
  5. Sew hook and loop tape in place. With right sides together, sew one end of the wrist wallet together.
  6. Turn right side out and top stitch the other end together as far as each side of the zipper, taking care not to sew over the zipper.
  7. Turn and press as desired.

I love this idea! My teenage son runs cross country and track. He trains everyday, but he has no place for his phone or wallet so he leaves them behind. This wallet would give me greater peace of mind if he could at least carry his phone. I think he would be okay with it done in jean material too. Thanks.
