2 years ago, I found a tute for a business card wallet...I tried it out and could barely fit the card into the wallet. I meant to revisit the tutorial again and figure out the sizing problem, but didn't get around to it until recently.  I am preparing for a craft fair, and wanted to make a bunch of lower priced items for it.  Instead of trying to locate that tutorial again, I took measurements of my business cards, and drafted my own pattern for it.  I have four to begin with.  The great thing about these is that it takes very little fabric to make one, and they make great stocking stuffers too!

All four...

My favorite fabric...

Another view of all four...

I'm not a fan of the striped one...makes the stitching show up too much.

Did you use a stiff interfacing for these? They look great!  Grin

@ Evilstrawberry...

I plan to do a tutorial SOON so please check back at my blog, but to answer your immediate question, I used a heavyweight fusible interfacing.  Honestly, it doesn't feel very heavy, but if you compare it to the mid or light weight, you'll notice the difference. 

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments Smiley
