The Making of an RFID safe Wallet Insert for Men

Fred wanted an insert for his wallet. He brought me a business envelope that fit exactly into the back of his billfold. The kind with a little window.

  First, I fit a piece of aluminum foil into the envelope and sealed it.

 Next I cut a piece of cotton fabric, and used a straight stitch to attach that to one side of the envelope. Then, I attached  two strips of duct tape to the other side (or duck tape as it is now being called in stores...thanks, "W".... I'm guessing, but I digress), and used a zigzag stitch around the edge. It fits perfectly! 

There are probably as many different wallets around as there are men. Wait. Wait! I take that back. There may well be more types of wallets around than men, but best not get too philosophical right now. ;-) Point is, when using this idea the standard large business envelope may or may not be the right size to use. It doesn't have to be an envelope either. Paper wrapped around foil would do, also.

Oh, and btw, this was a very-mini tutorial on making a wallet insert for a billfold! I know! Blink and you miss it!
