I really like the way this came out! It's just a piece of cotton calico, folded over and reinforced with light interfacing, and whipstitched. On the back, I sewed on one of those plastic pockets that hold photos in wallets, which will contain my contact info.

My firsts for this project: French knots, thread blending, and that thing where I made the swirly pattern on her bow (no idea what that's called, if anything). I used Jenny's tutorial for French knots, and thought that they were a breeze!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
