Sew fun!

Today I've been playing with some of the new Stampin' Up! fabric that is in the mini... this is from the Sew Suite collection - I love the designs on all the different things in this line, they are such fun colors and remind me of those fun 50's designs, maybe I've been watching too much Mad Men. However, unlike some of those 50's housewives, I am NOT a seamstress! So far I've made lots of the fabric flowers using the flower folds die - easy, and no sewing required... today I decided to get out of my comfort zone and break out my sewing machine - previously, only used to sew card stock and paper, ha ha! I found this pattern on a website of somebody who knows what she's doing - it really wasn't too difficult and here's what I ended up with... I sewed on one of the giant buttons, also from the mini, and now I have a fun new business card holder! You could also use it for keeping all those loyalty cards that clog up your purse...
