DIY Ultra-Thin Wallet


I like to put my wallet in my front pocket, to be more comfortable, I need the wallet to be as thin as possible. This is what I come out with. A original design wallet with eco bag material
with 8 card slots and two money pockets. Since eco bag material is not so durable so I also build another one with cloth tape and hope it is more durable.



Blue and white color bag was used. Blue as main color and white as card separator.


Thickness comparison with standard wallet.


Thickness comparison with 8 cards and some cash.

After 2 years of use, it shows some wear and tear at the wallet corners.
so I have build another one with cloth tape.

Since the material thickness has increase, I reduce the the wallet to 4 card slot and 2 cash pocket.
