Credit card wallets

This time of year I always get the urge to make little gift type items. I have a small family who won't be around on Christmas and no spouse at the moment so there is no reason to make gifts but I do it anyway.

 

Last week I made these little credit card wallets. I made one for myself a long time ago and use it a lot.

There are lots of tutorials on how to make these. I used this one only used Velcro and made it a tad smaller to make the cards fit snug so they won't fall out.

I walk and hike a lot and like to bring my license and a credit card but don't want to carry a purse or wallet and these little wallets are perfect to keep in your pocket.

 

This is the perfect solution. Two little pockets just big enough for a few cards.

 

Velcro keeps it closed and safe.

 

For a filler I experimented using batting then felt but found this thin 1/8" foam works the best.

Gives it some volume.

 

And I get to play with my novelty fabrics!

 

Ended up making quite a few so put them in my etsy shop here.

I thought they would make a great gift card holder as well as the gift of being a credit card wallet.

I'm kind of over making them now and am on to smart phone pillows.

Stay tuned next week for those

;-)

What are you making?

  3. Oh! You remember the tea holders I gave out when I had my knee surgery? Very similar. I filled them with some Splenda and a few interesting teas. The staff loved them!
