Card Holder

So I got invited to another Craft Fair... this one is in the spring. So after realizing that winter hats are probably not going to sell well I switched gears. I just started experimenting with some different patterns that may sell well at a spring time Craft Fair.

  • Nesting Bowls
  • Summer Jackets
  • Toys
  • Summer Hats
  • Card Holders/Wallets
Just a few of the many things on my list.... So I searched the web to see if I could find any designs to run with and I found some great card holders. Most of which were just your basic crocheted holders with a closure of some kind.

I started making one (just a basic rectangle shape) and decided to add a fabric lining. I have tons of fabric just lying around from a previous project. So I added a great lining and a button closure and came up with an awesome card holder that was super simple to make, but makes a big impression!

Already have this one up on etsy. I have enough fabric and buttons to make about 4 more of these for the Craft Fair... if they don't sell before hand. Already planning on making a bigger clutch purse out of the same concept!

  1. It's really cute and very feminine. I like the idea of nesting bowls - they're very big right now. You might want to toy with some airy, lacy scarves too. Congrats on being invited to another fair! Sincerely, Theresa
