This was an unexpected item to make, but also necessary. I now have a vaccination card that I need to carry with me. I wanted to make a simple, in the hoop project to not only protect the card, but that could also easily be added to my keyring, a lanyard or wherever else I may need to show my ID.
I used the Chroma Software that came with my Ricoma EM1010 Multi Needle embroidery machine to create this basic pouch. I love that with the software (free with any Ricoma embroidery machine), I was able to not only create an embroidery file for my Em1010, but also for my Janome 500e single needle machine. You will need a 5 x 7 hoop as the covid vaccination cards are 4″ wide.
The best part is I am sharing the file with you! You can get it for free by clicking the image above. I’ve made multiple formats, so hopefully, you can find one that works with your embroidery machine.
In the tutorial below you will find that I am going to walk you step by step through this project with both a single needle and a multi-needle embroidery machine.
