Fold the card piece accordion style as indicated on the pattern, from the bottom wrong sides together on the fold line (Marked lines), then right sides together (tricky bit) and wrong sides then right sides together.

Press well, Top stitch the card slots and Baste Stitch down 1/4″  from the side edges.

Stitch a line down the center of the card slots.

If you are wanting card slots on both sides make another one in the same way.

Now move the zipper pull to the centre. VERY IMPORTANT!

Now match up and pin the two front pieces together and the two lining pieces together.


Ensure that the zipper teeth point towards the lining. 

Sew all the way around with a 1/2″ seam allowance leaving a 3″ hole at the bottom of the lining for turning.

  1. Hi Lorelei Jayne……Thanks for the widened card and coin purse tutorial. It is very nice and something I would use. What struck me first as soon as I looked at it was a place to put my coupons, using the outside pockets for the coupons to be used immediately (first pocket for food coupons, second pocket for non-food coupons, and the zippered pocket to be used for storage of all your coupons. This is an item I have been looking for. Also would make a quick and cute Christmas gift. Thank you again for the great tutorial. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family…………..Camille

  2. Hey Lorelei Jayne…….I forgot to mention that you would have to leave out the stitching down the center of the card holder so that the coupons would fit easily. Thanks…………Camille

  3. I am the newsletter editor for our American Sewing Guild (ASG) Memphis, TN Chapter. I would like to know if I can include the Pattern download in our newsletter. If anyone wanted to make it they would have to come to this page for the tutorials.
    Thanks you
