Business Card Holder

Business Card Holder, (2.5" x 4.5")

This is a small project Barb Cribb of Wild Thymes Pattern Company designed for function but also to see if you like the art of wool applique. It is fast and easy to construct. When the needle goes through the wool, it feels like butter--smooth. I enjoyed working on this piece and may work on another "mini" kit.

Your card holder is really nice. It is always fun to have a fast and easy project to work on. For me, it is something about instant satisfaction.

Very clever design for business cards. Love the colors you picked, and your handstitching looks lovely.

Jacq, this really was easy. However, I'm afraid that my hand stitching needs some work. Not bad for a first try.

Thanks for looking, Catherine.

Cindy, hand stitching through buttery wool is an art in itself. Getting the stitches even is difficult and requires practice--kind of like painting with watercolors.
