    Question NCW makers, would you remake this flap?

    I'm currently waiting for hardware, so I thought I'd do what I could until it got here. When I stacked them up to put aside, is when I seen the flap part isn't as wide as the credit card pockets. They measure what they are suppose too, so I set the template next to the flap and..................well, you see. Is it going to matter, or am I going to have pockets poking out from the sides? Thanks for any comments or advice.

    I always trim the sides of my pockets to make sure they are straight and raw edges are even. that should take care of your problem

    If at first you don't succeed, try doing it the way your mom told you to in the first place

    Nesessary clutch wallet. It's a pattern by emmaline bags.
    I also trim so that little bit would not be a problem.

    Thanks ladies. I wasn't really wanting to do it over, but I'd like for it to come out nice too!

    When i place the pockets, I fold in the side flaps as tight as I can to check the size and trim accordingly. Works fine.

    After seeing all the fabulous NCWs on the forum I've just bought the pattern.
    I don't have any of the turning thingys but do have several sizes of snaps and also magnetic closures.
    Would the magnetic ones be suitable?
    I just got fabric from M* which would be great for one of these wallets so want to start right now!

    I used a magnetic snap on one of mine and it worked fine. it holds tightly too
