Maybe this has happened to you: you head out to run errands in a super cute scarf (or headband, or mitts or any other beautiful handmade item), and you get stopped by someone who asks where you got your beautiful accessory! Well this is perfect, because not only did you MAKE it, but you make and sell lots of things! You dig in your bag, trying to find a loose business card (or maybe you don’t carry business cards) and can’t find one. Ugh! You swear you will have business cards next time someone asks.
Well this adorable little crochet business card pouch might help you with this problem. Make a few of these pouches and put one in your car, or in your bag or in your pocket and you will be sure to get every sale and every lead that you run in to.
I really love the delicate texture of fingering-weight yarn. It would be very daunting to attempt something large like a blanket or afghan in this tiny yarn, but it works out perfectly for this little pouch.

I feel I need to add that although that flower shaped button is super cute, I do not recommend it! I will be putting a round button on the next one I made, it catches on the yarn annoyingly.
