Business Card Holder DIY

This year I have the opportunity to attend 2 blog conferences. Build Your Blog with the  Six Sisters Stuff and Snap! In preparation to go I have made an adorable Business card holder.  I found a few online and they were not the right size so I made my own.

Here is what you need.
Fat Eight- 9x22 fabric
Iron on pellon
Hair Elastic

Start by cutting (2) 9x5 inch pieces. 
Cut from the 9x5 3 inches off the top.  Giving you (2) 6x5 rectangles and (2) 3 x 5 rectangles.

Fold over 1/8th inch along the longs side of the 3x5 inch pieces. 

 Stitch them into place.

Pin your small rectangles to each end of your large rectangles.  Matching up corners.

Pin the second large rectangle on top of  the first. Stitch around the outside edge leaving an opening along one short end.

Turn right sides out. Be sure to push corners out. Press.

Pin hair elastic to the center of the card holder. Top stitch around the outside edge of the holder.  Be sure to back stitch over the elastic.

Mark where you want your button to go and hand stitch it into place.

All finished.

Here are a few more projects you can do with a fat eighth
