I am a bag lady - I have big handbags and carry the world in them, including a fairly large purse. But or quick trips to local shop, or for storing cards that I need quick access to [rather than rummaging through my bag and/or purse], I have a simple, little & glittery DIY.
| WHAT YOU NEED |
Glitter Fabric / Tape Measure or Ruler / Pins / Needle & Thread / Sewing Machine / Fabric Glue
| HOW YOU MAKE IT |
I created my own template [please feel free to use below] but I'll also talk you quickly through the very simple measurements I used and why if you want to create your own to accommodate more cards or a slightly different layout.
Using a debit card as my template, I marked the card size and added a further 0.5cm to one side and the bottom. This would give a little wiggle room and allow for the thickness of the card, without straining the fabric. I then added a 0.5cm seam to each side, the top and the bottom.
I reflected this pattern from the line that would be the bottom of the card holder. To ensure that the card could be removed easily, I created a dip in the top line.
Use this template to cut your fabric.
Tie a secure knot [or two] with the two threads at the start of the stitch and then use a needle to thread these back in to the running stitch for a couple of stitches, finishing on the inside of the card holder.
Trim the thread and this will create a nice, neat finish. Repeat on the other side.
