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.
