Do you know where she got it from, its super cute!

greenknitter said...

gotta love mom's!

Jess said...

She sewed it out of my fabric.

Dorkys Ramos said...

Oh that's so cute!! I might have to make custom business card holder for mine since they're square and don't exactly fit in my current wallet.

I actually just did a post on them. Found them on Etsy!

ohbrooke said...

Awww... Love that!

Jess said...

There, I edited the post to clarify where it came from. Dorkys Ramos, I will check them out!

Waxy said...

Love your cards and your new card holder!

Grandma G said...

Gee, Mum gets 2 posts this week! Wow!! You getting hard up for stuff to post? ;-)

Maybe I should make them to sell in the shop, huh???????

Erin said...

Awww . . . she's real good. :)

sarahmartina said...

First of all- you've got an awesome Mom! :) Secondly... does she wanna share a pattern for that? Lol! I'd love to make one! If I try w/out a pattern I'm liable to screw it up. :(

Twiddle Thumbs said...

That is totally sweet! Yay for mom's that care.

stance. said...

Joy said...

That's so cute. And yay for thoughtful moms! :)

kelly said...

Shannon said...

Cute, cute, cute!! And what a great mom!

I BLEED PINK said...

Thanks for the update. You should convince her to sell these, I would buy one ASAP!

City Chic said...

What a nice surprise!

carrie said...

That's awesome!! I love how it coordinates (which was probably the point). Kudos to mom!

Duck Duck Moose Design said...

Jody said...

What a wonderful mom you have!!!

Emilie said...

That is WAY too cute!!

Tori said...

How do I get on your mom's mailing** list to receive all sorts of cute goods!

**have you heard of those kind of clubs?

your mom is awesome, love, love, love it!

Karen said...

I love how when you come up with one idea how it spurs you/others onto even more;)

Erin said...

Amy Butler has a very similar FREE pattern on her site for a business card holder. I made one for a friend and substituted as snap as well for velcro...now i just need to get around to making MYSELF one@

Randi said...

That is SO cute!!

Amy said...

Cute!! Aren't moms great? LOL

Mod Podge Amy said...

Hip hip hooray for moms! Will use this to make my mom feel guilty. Thank you.

Jess said...

You're welcome. If you need any help, let me know.

Suzy D. said...

I love those small card holders. They are quick and look great.A good way to use up scraps

Nicole-Lynn said...

So adorable

Ginger Dupre said...

She should make and sell them. I would definitely buy a few for my photography business!

Pixie said...

That is great! I want one!

Lori Beth said...

How Cute is that?!?! I actually just stole one of my husbands business card holders today (he has about 4). They all have his initals, but I figure they're close enough to mine. WHen I get time I think I may try to make one of these to have a more stylish way to carry my business cards for my new business. If I ever find your fabric on sale at JCaroline, I want to get some to offer for my clutches. Check it out. http://www.grabngobaby.com (constantly a work in progress)

sydney85 said...

Your mom is amazing. You might want to keep her.

Azra Momin said...

Awesome - what a cool way to coordinate!

Grandma G said...

Thank you, everyone!! Except for the person who called me "ma". Don't EVER call me "ma". Makes me feel like a 60-yr.-old farm wife or something. Okay, so that's what I am... but I'd rather feel like a youngish mom of a terrific designer. ;-) (No offense taken, stance.)

Well, Boss... whaddya say? Do I whip up some of these for the Etsy shop? I think so. If anyone has a fabric preference (Jessica Jones fabrics, of course), they can email me via the address in the shop announcements. (Top of the page under "CUSTOM REQUESTS".)

As for the pattern requests, I'll think about it.....

Blue is Bleu said...

How wonderful and sweet of your mum :)

Sara said...

I just discovered your blog yesterday, and I have to tell you that I love it. I've spent the last 2+ hours reading back through old posts. All of your links and craft ideas are great. Love your style! Keep things coming in the Etsy shop. I'll definitely be ordering.

Smarry said...

That is totally sweet! Yay for mom's that care.

Very cool...did Courtney do the snaps?

Cameron Blazer said...

Fabulous! I've been trying to figure out what to do with all my fabric strike-off swatches, and I think I just got the answer!

Jess said...

Why yes, Elena, how did you know?

Waterstone by Lori Plyler said...

whoa! very impressed with mom's talent. you think she might make a few more??? :)

Lindy said...

love love LOVE it!

Grandma G said...

Why Jess, how did YOU know?

Making more is in the plan for today. But speaking of snaps, I have to see if the new ones I bought on Wed. will work with my snap-putter-inner. If not, we may be in trouble, because I don't have quick access to many notions out here in the boonies.

Charlotta Ward said...

My eyes teared when I read your 'business card pouch post'! I receive postal bags from my mum all the way from Sweden with loving little treats. It means the world to me.

Your mum is very clever. You should ask her to make a few more and sell them via your site. I'd buy one for sure!!

Thanks for a lovely blog!
