This pattern by Normajean Brevik was published in the Winter 2006 (Issue 24) of Quilting Arts magazine.
Magic! The card rises to the top when the ribbon is pulled. The case can be made into a necklace if desired.
I made my first one to coordinate with one of my favourite outfits.
I’ll make a few more just to stay at the height of fashion. Here’s one that I made last night using a piece of A5 fabric I made by printing one of my Southbank graffiti photos onto white pima cotton, an eyelet and silver leather cord for the necklace.
The little compartment at the back is good for spare cards, driving license, oyster card, etc.
