Free Sewing Tutorial for Slip Pocket with Card Holders

I love little "extras" that keep things organized.

Adding a slip pocket with multiple card holder to our Christine Frame Clutch or Felicity Frame Clutch is the perfect way to separate your cell phone, cards and pens.

 

Let's get stared :

1) Cut one piece of fabric for the cards holder and pocket, it measures 7 1/2 inch wide and 23 inch long.
