After breaking numerous wallets because of too many cards stuffed in it, a friend suggested that I have a separate card holder.  I've seen tutorials online, but I ended up creating my own pattern.  It's about 4 inches wide x 2.5 inches high.  It fits up to about 1/2 inch stack of cards.  I have totally enclosed the side seams, including the lining (not like most card holders that have the sides just folded up and sewn).  Onto the pictures:

Close up of side view and inside lining.  You can see that all the side seams are encased - including the lining, not just folded up and sewn:

Very nice! I could never match the corners w/the fold up & sew seams, this is much better. Nice design detail w/the flap.

This is really lovely. I'll have to try this. (Don't worry, not going to pressure you for a tute.) I know the basics. If I make one, do you mind if I post here to show you?

I want to jump up and try one of these right now!  I'm making some of those card holders as gifts and I love this design so much better.  I also love he fabric you used for the inside, I have some in my stash.
