hello lovelies! i'm attending fall quilt market this weekend (eeee!) and decided to make a little business card holder for the event. i made one for myself and another one for one of you as well! they are really simple to make, and only take a few minutes. each of these are made with some custom fabric i designed and ordered from spoonflower, but you can use any cotton fabric. read on for the tutorial and giveaway details!
- 2 pieces of fabric measuring 4.5" x 6"
- 2 pieces of fusible web (i use lite steam-a-seam 2) measuring 4.5" x 6"
- an iron
- pinking shears
- sewing machine
apply each piece of fusible web to the wrong side of each of your pieces of fabric and iron into place (follow package directions).
peel off the paper liner of your fusible web and fold each piece of fabric in half, making each piece 4.5" x 3". iron to fuse together.
cut around all 4 sides of each piece of fabric with your pinking shears, making one piece 3/4" shorter than the other to make a place for your cards to 'peek out'.
lay one piece of fabric on top of the other and pin into place. using your sewing machine, straight stitch on top all the way around using a 1/4" seam allowance.
finally, i'm so happy to be giving the one pictured above away to one of you!
