And since sewing a wallet often requires you to sew through several bulky layers of
fabric, you may want to switch to using a thicker, denim needle when sewing your
wallet, which will more easily pierce through those heavy layers without breaking.
And to create corners that will be nice and sharp (when turning your wallet right
side out after sewing in your lining), try sewing a squared-off corner instead of a
traditional pointed one.
To sew a squared-off corner, stop stitching a little more than 5/8" (or whatever
your seam allowance is) from the edge of your fabric. Leave your needle down in
your fabric, lift your presser foot, and pivot your fabric 45 degrees. Place your
presser foot down and sew one or two stitches. Leave your needle down in your
fabric, lift your presser foot again, and pivot your fabric until the next fabric edge is
against the seam guide. Put your presser foot down and continue sewing.
