DIY Tuesday: card holder/wallet

This little wallet makes the perfect business card holder..that's what I use mine for anyway :)  here's how I made this:

 step 1: find two fabrics, one for the outside and one for the liner.  These can be the same if you like.

step 2: Cut each piece 10 inches by 5 inches.  *not pictured but I also cut a piece of upholstery fabric to put on the inside to make it a little more sturdy.*

step 3: Line your two pieces facing each other.  If you're using an extra piece to give sturdiness, you will have this piece in between your outside and liner fabric.

step 4: Pin and sew around the entire rectangle leaving a 2 inch opening to turn out.

step 5: Turn right side out and top stitch around the entire rectangle.

step 6: Fold a little more that 1/3 of the rectangle up and pin. Leave enough at the top to have a flap.

step 7: Sew down each side back stitching at the top and bottom.
step 8: Add a small piece of velcro and you're done!  

 If you decide to make one, leave a link in the comments!  I'd love to see :)
