soft expensive looking card holder
the card holder would make a wonderful mother or father's day present. it stitches up pretty quickly and is fairly simple to put together.
you could also do this on your sewing machine if it will handle stitching through leather.
cut a piece of leather 4 x 8.5 inches
fold one short end up 1.75 inches and pinch in place.
push needle through between the fold (so that your knot is on the inside.
wrap the stitch around the folded portion and back in and out that same hole.
stitch 1/4 inch apart up the side seam to the top of the folded section.
