I love projects that use up my scraps and remnants I have left over from other projects. It took less than 10 minutes.
What you'll need:
Fabric. My piece was 10 1/2 inches x 5 inches and fits standard business cards.
An iron (optional but it makes it easier)
Thread, coordinating or contrasting depending on the look you are going for.
Velcro or snaps (optional)
If your fabric isn't already the right size start by cutting a piece 10 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches high.
|I did my best to center the pattern|
Next I ironed creases in to my fabric. You don't have to do this part but it made it easier.
|Folded in again|
Now you're up to the sewing part. Unfold the short sides leaving the 1/8 inch piece still folded in and stitch.
Fold the short sides at the 2 inch crease. Making sure the long sides are still folded down, sew along the long edges. This will secure both of the pockets.
|Make sure to keep everything folded in|
All done! Yes, it's that simple.
|My cards fit in here nicely|
If you want to add some extra flair you can do some applique, embroidery or a decorative stitch around the edges.
You can always add some Velcro or snaps to keep it closed but I loved the way it felt without a bulky snap. It fits in my bag or slides neatly in to my pocket without looking bumpy. Since it's cute you always want to give out business cards just to show off the case.
