Business card holder

 

I haven’t written much about the things I am making recently, but I’ll try to fix that.  On Sundays I like to play around with new ideas.  Today it was business card holders.  I have made several little bags and glasses cases, so I had a general idea about what I wanted to do.  I made my first one from two Moda squares, but I wasn’t happy with a shape of the flap.  I added some cording, and like the results much better.

The fabric is from the 60s and the button is from my mom’s collection.

I like to do something unexpected with the lining in my bags.  I thought this butterfly print was a fun contrast.

I do like the way I constructed this little case.  Adding the cording made it easier to get the rounded edged turned out.  It’s just two pieces of 5 inch by 9 inch fabric.  I pressed interfacing to the lining to add some body.

It’s a generous 3 inches by 4 inches so it can be stuffed with business cards, or you can throw in a credit card and some cash and stick it in your pocket.  I would have to add some lip gloss, too!
