All Small Week Day 1: Business Card Holder

Because sometimes you need a small something, and this small something is suitable for persons of all ages, whether they use it as a business card holder, or for gift or store loyalty cards.

Melanie created this easy-to-follow tutorial. She includes abundant pictures. You can easily complete one of these card holders in less than an hour.

I did not precisely follow the tutorial as I used interfacing instead of fusible fleece, and narrow elastic instead of a hair band, as that is what I had on hand.

Do be aware that your final edge/top stitching needs to be VERY CLOSE to the edge or the cards will not fit. The tutorial works well, but only if you are careful with your seam allowances.

I enjoyed this tutorial so much, I made four. The two with the darling mouse fabric don’t have homes yet.  They were my practice items. The red/black one goes in my Christmas pile for Husband. I have even already slipped a few of his cards inside. The butterfly one is for Daughter.  Yep, that enterprising quilter even has business cards now.

I am having fun finally getting to some of the items on my  “Hmm…I want to try that someday” list.  The projects are all SMALL in time, meaning that they require a few hours or so to complete.  Some, like this one, are also SMALL in size.  Join me again tomorrow for another All Small Week project.

  3. They look perfect. I love the idea of carrying maybe the grocery cards or even credit cards around in this cute little thing. Plus the gift card idea. I will make some up before Christmas, I think, and have them ready!

  4. I love them! And I could probably use a couple of them myself. My cards usually just are left loose in the pocket of my coat, and I rarely carry my business cards on my (which is only hurting myself, I admit, since I really ought to carry a couple just in case), and something like this could also be fun to make as gifts for friends! Thanks for the link to the tutorial!
