Another Purpose For a Key

"Victorian Credit Card Keeper" with an inserted protection barrier!  

I forgot to take a picture of the key by it's self and it gets stitched on first before it is sew together.

I found that no one can read your credit card with these simple silver proctors and so I carefully insert them inside 
between the velvet and felt.  Frey check the velvet where the edge is cut so you can stitch things down.

After the key is sewn on, then stitch the keeper together and tatting simple edge to fit all the way around
I stitch the tatting in place keeping a few credit cards in it so you don't stitch too far in ward. 

keeping the credit cards inside while stitching can help too when you need to add a little something for artistic balance :)
the protectors can be ordered at Amazon or eBay.
My blackberries made great tarts, I actually made 3 but the other 2 got eaten too fast!
Little over half way round with the spring doily!


  1. The key to good tatting is to put it to good use ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

    1. Yes you are funny, I guess I just love tatting that some people say what is it good for? I don't know it fun to make and pretty that's all๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Did you use craft felt or wool felt? In love with this project!

  6. I used craft felt I love the color choice but real wool would be nice I'm sure. ☺️

  7. Fabulous card holder!! Love the key!! :)
