Last week, over a plate of okonomiyaki —
my sister agreed to try the expandable (open) pocket wallet, or for lack of a better word, Version 2. She was quite excited about the size and feel of the bookcloth wallet. Fitting more cash in the pockets was definitely a plus, but after a week of using it, and dropping cards on the floor, she still can’t decide if I should keep making them or not!?!
BUT I HAVE DECIDED! NOT! TO MAKE VERSION 2!
The origami folds need to interlock in order to hold and retain their shape well. Sure, I’ve thought of reinforcing the inside folds with stiff chipboard, but the open pocket design makes all the other pockets unstable, and will undoubtedly, not pass the test for aerodynamism-o!
Thus far, the maximum number of pockets an origami City Wallet can have stands at an even six! Two outer pockets and four inner pockets! So — Ciao, Sette! Ciao, Otto! Another time, amici mio!
