Whether it is your go-to bag for shopping or a gift for someone, this simple and chic crossbody purse is a great bag for everyday of the year.
These displays can be made using any fabrics that coordinate with your decor. I chose to use a simple cream colored muslin and old linens.
The base of this is very simple to make. I left my fabric folded as it comes on the bolt (with selvages together) and cut it to 16 inches wide. Next, I refolded it so right sides of the fabric were together, stitched a 1/2 inch seam up each side, clipped the corners in the seam allowance by the fold, and turned the fabric right side out again.
To give the piece some stability and prevent it from sagging under the weight of the cards, I encased a length of dowel rod down each side and one horizontally in the center of the piece, and one in the bottom. The hanger reinforces the top edge.
To determine the length of the side dowel rods, I folded over the top edge (for decorative purposes) and the bottom edge (to create one of the pockets).
To keep the rods along the edges and in the center in place, I used a zipper foot on my sewing machine, pressing it up against the edge of the dowel rod as I was stitching. The rod in the center is 1 inch shorter than the width of the piece (and centered) to allow room along both sides for stitching on the pockets.
To create the other pocket, I used the seam ripper from the Fiskars Sew Taxi to remove the crocheted trim from an old pillowcase and stitched it to the base along the sides and bottom. I used Fiskars scissors to cut vintage trims to the correct length to embellish the display.
Until I begin receiving cards, my card display works as holiday decor because I have embellished it with diecut/letterpress shapes made using the Fiskars Fuse. This sweet little bird is one of the Medium Design sets designed for cutting thicker materials. I used a Platinum colored ink pad to give it some dimension but retain the soft, monochromatic look.
I also used one of the Photo Etched Design sets which are designed to cut thinner materials (cardstock in this case) with more intricate designs.
