Make this nice and practical card holder in not time!
This card holder is made out of fabric and it's purpose is to hold your credit card, library card, driver's licence or even your business cards.
I love giving it as a little present with a gift card inside. Gift cards are very popular but I think that adding a nice, useful and handmade card holder makes the gift card even more special.
This sewing project is very simple and you can make it in a very short time. So get those scraps of fabric out and start your sewing machine!
Step 1: List of Materials
1- Heavy fabric for the outside and light weight fabric for the lining.(Scraps and small pieces that are at least 6" by 6" are OK)
3- Velcro (the kind that you sew on the fabric)
4- Poster board or heavy paper to trace the template
6- Pinking shears
7- Fabric scissors
OPTIONAL- Fusible fabric stabilizer (you can get it at any fabric shop)I will explain how to use this at the end.
Step 2: Trace and cut templates
The first template should measure 5 3/4" by 4 1/4"
The second template should measure 4 1/4" by 2 1/4"
Cut them up and these will be yout templates for the card holder.
Step 3: Transfer template to fabric.
Now trace using with the large template again onto the light fabric. This will be the lining.
Trace two times on another piece of heavy fabric using the SMALL TEMPLATE.
Cut the four pieces.
Step 4: Cut your pieces
Two inside pockets
With the pinking shears cut the just one edge of each one of the pieces that will become the card holder pockets.(One of the wider edges)
