Card case

Did you get your free business cards from moo and etsy yet?  Mine came last week.  I love them!  I knew I had to make a case to match.

This is what I did:

You'll need 2 pieces of fabric, 5 x 12 each, as well as a piece of interfacing in the same size.  (I used two different patterns, but the inside fabric is really not visible.) 

Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of one piece of fabric.

Pin fabric pieces, right sides together, and sew.  Leave a gap for turning.

Then you know the drill: snip the corners (be careful not to cut any stitches).

Turn right side out.

Poke out the corners with a knitting needle and press.

Topstitch, being sure to sew the opening shut.

Then iron your topstitched fabric in half, being sure to make a crease in the middle.

Iron each side in towards the crease.

Pin the flaps in place and sew directly on top of your line of stitching.

And there you go!  An easy little card case to match your fancy new cards.

  3. That is cute! I love that you thought to make a card holder out of fabric. You are amazing!

    Also, do you know where your green polka dot fabric came from? I decided to embark on making my first quilt and I'm doing a toddler quilt for my little girl in greens, purples and whites for her palm tree/surfer girl room.
