FINISHING
 
Block piece.
 
Lining:
 
  • Iron felt lining piece first in half, then bring both short edges inward to fold, leaving appx 1/2″ gap (for cards) and iron. 
  • Attach yarn piece to felt by hand-stitching around. Start by pinning the corners of each side and then the centers along each edge. The knitted piece will stretch, so be sure to keep things neat by pinning.
  • Hand stitch (blanket stitch or whip stitch would both work.)
Assembly:
 
  • Fold short edges inward, using the iron crease on the felt lining, and stitch the sides of each card slot. 
 
Optional:
  • Add sew-in snap if desired, and adorn with a sassy tassel.
