We are making card wallets today and the best part about it is – We are making them from a placemat! These are oh so easy and the perfect project for the beginner sewists, like me!
I recently went to Creativation in Phoenix and needed something to carry my business cards to the show. I bought a boring little magnetic metal pouch to take to the show, but I was thinking this morning that there must be a cuter alternative.
Which led me to my craftroom and my Pioneer Woman placemats. I whipped up a couple of these in less than 30 minutes. The only supplies you need are a placemat, ruler, magnetic closure, a piece of coordinating fabric and your sewing machine.
Ready to make one? You guessed it! I’ve got a video tutorial for you. Please tag me on social media if you make one!

My WalMart does not have cute placemats so have been making your bag designs using double sided quilted fabric… in order to have the clean edge inside of each pocket, would I use your fat quarter edging idea for that as well?? These will make an awesome set for Christmas or birthday gifts!! Thank you so much!!
You found absolutely do it that way or sew the zipper the opposite direction and then flip it over. Depends on how thick
