Fabric, Crafty Business Cards


Do you ever have a need to hand out business cards?
Sure you do!

When you go to
The Market
Play Dates
Craft Stores
or other Blog Conferences

Someone is going to ask "what do you do"?

Now you will have a crafty business card to whip out
and proudly say I am a BLOGGER.
This will make you sound and look like a real business.

Melissa over at MOMCOMM has a wonderful post on

I wish we knew about Melissa before we made our cards.
(next go round we will have everything correct)

How did we make our Fabric Business Cards?

We designed our business cards to look like our blog.
Printed them out on our home printer.

Now comes the fun part.
Choosing fabric
We have a fabulous stash of fabric.
In our other life we make pillowcases for

These are the fabrics we chose for our cards.


Must say perfect color match!

Iron fabric
we used our handy dandy

Lay out the fabric right side down.
Spread glue onto the center back of a business card.
Make sure not to get the glue along the edges.
Sewing over glue is not a great idea.

Cut around business cards with pinking shears.
This will help fabric from ripping.


Now you get to show off you sewing skills.
You do not have to be a pro at sewing.
This would be a great project for a beginner.
Choose a thread with contrast.
Sew around the card making sure not to get too close to the edges.
Trim left over thread.


TA-DA you are now official,
so be proud to hand out your
Business Cards.


Every woman should have 4 pets in her life.
A mink in her closet,
A jaguar in her garage,
A tiger in her bed,
and A jackass who pays for everything.

  1. Hello! Allison here - met you at BBCATL. LOVED YOU! My mother in law is a professional quilter and the first thing I did Sunday was take a pic of your card and send it to her. I loved it.
    I was so happy to have met you and one day when I make it to the Big Easy I will look you up - I know you can show me a good time!
