Credit Card Pocket
1. To form the credit card slots, make 1 1/2-inch-deep horizontal pleats and baste. For added interest trim each slot with decorative ribbon.
2. Turn under the sides and bottom and appliqué to the fabric piece that will eventually become your bag lining.
3. For a see-through pocket, frame a 2 1/2 inch by 4 inch piece of light weight vinyl with ribbon. Place it just below the louvered pocket and sew the sides and bottom edges.
