I'm having some cards made for Sewing Summit, which makes me feel a little self conscious, actually. But there it is - I'll have cards on the off chance someone actually wants one. I thought it would be nice to have a little self-sewn keeper for the cards, but I am NOT a bag maker. That's your disclaimer, right there.
this free pattern by Amy Butler. It went together really easily, and I thought the pattern was good and well thought out.
Shirt Crisp for the main pieces and hair canvas for the back piece (where it called for peltex). Since peltex is a bit thicker than hair canvas, I used three layers of canvas that I serged around the edges. I also used hair canvas in the card slot section (pink), but I made the mistake of leaving the seam allowances untrimmed, so the seams there are incredibly bulky. I had to hammer the heck out of them to get the thing to fold.
