We just spent the weekend at SNAP! and met so many great people! And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from attending conferences, it’s that business cards are everywhere. Typically, you can find me digging around to find one to hand out, and the cards I gather end up a scattered mess. To help with this problem I sewed up a little business card wallet.
I shared this tutorial on Kojo Designs as part of her Sewing for Me series. And just the other day I realized that if I made it a little bigger it would also be perfect as a passport cover.
It’s a small project and I found everything I needed in my stash. Fabric, interfacing, elastic, and vinyl. To start, cut 2 pieces of fabric and 1 piece of interfacing down to size. Mine were 4.5″ x 5.5″. I also cut the elastic to 6″ and 2 pieces of vinyl 2.5″ x 4″. Go ahead and iron the interfacing onto the back of 1 of the pieces of fabric and then assemble. I laid it out like I wanted and then added the top piece face down. Pin it all together. And sew. Don’t forget to leave an opening to turn through. Then turn it! The vinyl took a little working to get it out and laying flat, then I top stitched around making sure I closed up the hole.
Perfect for cards! I quickly printed this one up for the guest post.
But these are the actual cards we used. By the way, Brooke designed the cards and I think they turned out so cute! You can’t really tell from the photo, but they were printed on pearly paper!
I added a simple flower and was so excited to “have it all together”….well at least in the world of business cards at SNAP!
