I love to find quick sewing projects that allow me to add embroidery. Business card holders are perfect to make for gifts for a variety of reasons.
- They use up scrap fabrics!
- They can be cute and functional – they can hold gift cards, business cards, frequent shopper cards etc
- Kids love them too – little ones can put their “pretend credit cards” in them to go “shopping”
- Easy companion accessory – if you made the purse and have extra fabric, boom quick coordinating accessory.
I like to find instructions for my quick projects that are clear and easy to follow. Once I made the test version, I was able to plan for my embroidery placement. I added the monogram on the front flap which was blank. On the back side is a single pocket and on the inside are two more pockets. This is the style that I liked, but there are many more options available.
One of the blogs that I frequent for simple projects like this is Tip Junkie. Not only do they have a nice selection of projects, but I have found that the projects they feature are well written with nice photos. Yes, you will find non-sewing projects at times, but hey, I know I’m not the only one that dabbles in other crafty activities!
I’m sure you can come up with many other ideas and uses for these quick little gifts.
