Red and Blue Trifold Wallet

Opened, this wallet measures just over 4in by 8.5in. The lining is a thrift store find, so I'm not sure of the exact fabric make up, but I think it's a cotton blend with one side that's really shiny. You have to touch it to tell that it's not vinyl or some other waterproof material. The outside is a new fabric remnant, so I don't know the exact fabric make-up of it either, but it's a heavy material, similar to canvas or a lightweight upholstery fabric.

The wallet has six card pockets and one large pocket at the top for cash. I haven't decided if I'll add a closure, and if I do, I'm not sure if it will be Velcro or a snap closure. The far left set of pockets is a bit wider than the other four, so it would be pretty easy to put the closure there and not sacrifice the pocket space.

I need to learn more about different types of fabrics so I can more accurately describe anything I make. I love using second hand material, but I have no idea how to label it.
