2 Pocket, Ultra Slim Fabric Card Case

2 Pocket, Ultra Slim Fabric Card Case
A few weeks ago, I went to Dallas for the wedding of a friend of mine from college, and unsurprisingly, the reception ended up doubling as a mini college reunion. Some of those people I literally hadn’t seen since graduation day. Naturally, the experience got me thinking about the thing I am always thinking about: sewing. (really). I already make a cute little single pocket card case/wallet thing that people love to impulse-buy at craft shows, but occasionally I get asked about one with two pockets, that would fold in half. why 19th street? Remembering our 19th street adventures made me think of that critical accessory (nobody carried purses when we went out), and how a handmade version would be pretty cute, and super useful. I also used lightweight fusible interfacing, but that’s also optional, especially if you use something a bit heavier for the outside. the pattern…is really just two rectangles. time to start sewing! 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. And viola!

I knew I could get a basic one from an office supply store, but all that boring black plastic seemed like it needed some fancifying. After checking out some examples on the internet, this seemed like something I could handle. I think you could too, if this is something that would help keep your life both fancy and organized, so here’s how I did it. Materials: A piece of fabric cut to cover the outside of your organizer – mine was a legal size, so it was 10.5″ by 18 3/4″ (you only need to add seam allowance to the bottom edget of the fabric i.e. make your fabric piece about 1/2 inch longer than it needs to be) Wide bias tape long enough to go around the outside edges – mine was about 60″. You can either make your own bias tape, or purchase it in a package.
