I was bored this morning, so while my boyfriend slept i had a random bout of creativity. his business card holder was sitting on his desk, and i always get frustrated with organizing my business cards, so i decided to make my own.



closed...



when opened (ignore my business cards lol).



the back when opened.

i used flannel, and ended up bending my needle. i do like the finished look though. this is only my second week of sewing so i think it came out pretty well. i measured the boyfriend's business card holder and used it to draft a pattern. one side has one pocket and the other has two. it would also make a cute little credit card wallet, especially if you used something like velcro to hold it together.

What a neat idea for using those small left over pieces of fabric.

I must try this.  Did you use anything for interfacing?

i didn't, but since the cards are so thick it seems to hold up pretty well... i might make another out of regular cotton (and not flannel since it was pretty thick), so i'd probably use interfacing then. i got a little impatient waiting in line at joann's over the weekend so i didn't pick any interfacing up.
