Snippets ~ A Slick Little Cardholder

Time for another little snippet from the sewing room...and a Blog Hop Party Giveaway!
 
My fabric wallet was looking a little shabby,
so I thought I'd use up a little scrap of laminate. 
At least if it gets grimy, I can just wipe it down!  "Sew" cute!
"Sugar & Spice" Laminated cotton by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake Designs, again.  Still. 
Can't help it - I adore the fabric, and I still have more scraps lying around my sewing room!
 
SUPPLIES:
Cut two 5" x 8" rectangles for cover and lining
1" Velcro or other hook & loop tape
5" x 8" pieces, 1" velcro

1)  MARK a curved line for flap by tracing something curvy - I used a CD. 
2)  PIN rectangles right sides together, then STITCH, leaving an opening for turning.
Stitch right sides together, leave space for turning
 
3)  TRIM curve and clip corners
Trim curves and corners
I always use pinking shears on my curves!
 
4)  Turn right side out and PRESS. 
Use a presscloth if pressing on the laminate side. 
The opening will be stitched closed in the next step.
Turn right side out, press

5)  FOLD up and PIN sides in place to form pocket.
Fold up; Pin
 
6)  EDGE-STITCH through all layers, beginning at one corner
and ending at the opposite corner.  Backstitch at the top of the pocket
7)  STITCH Velcro pieces in place.
Edge-stitch; Add Velcro
 
8)  FILL your new little wallet with business or credit cards, cash, whatever you'd like!
Use for business/credit cards/cash


Yeah, it's handy like that!
Goes great with my new Zippered Pouch!
 
 
Blog Hop Party with Give-AwaysI'm giving away one of these little cuties ↑, but you'll have to fill it yourself {wink}; I'll also throw in a bit of Riley Blake laminate and a couple of fat quarters to make a batch of your own sewing room SNIPPETS! << (click here to see the collection so far! 



Giveaway Rules:
1)  Be/Become a follower
2)  Leave a comment: what's going on in your sewing room/sewing space these days?
Winner will be announced March 15th.  Happy Quilting!

  42. This is really cute. May I offer a tip? As a means of protecting your cards from those "theft scanners", use a layer of aluminum foil as an "interfacing". It is said to give the same protection as one of those metal card protectors sold commercially.
