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.
