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?



  1. so cute.
    You DO have blogging friends who need gifts too.

  2. What size do you cut your pieces?

  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!
