I’m fed up of my plastic Oyster card holder looking crappy after only a couple of weeks (maybe I’m just really abusive to them). So I decided to make myself a more durable, and let’s face it prettier, fabric one:
First I made my template
I then cut out 1 template of lining fabric, 1 outer and 2 pocket. All the templates are the same because you double over the pocket fabric (cut a 1cm off the bottom so that there’s a gap between them.
Lay out the inner backing fabric and folder pockets the right way round with all edges aligned. Then place the right side of the outer fabric directly on top, right side against right side. Pin around the edge and sew all around leaving the 2 cm gap between each set of pockets un-sewn.
