DIY Yarn Swatch Wallets

Hi everyone, Christine here today. I’ve recently discovered crochet and I’m amazed by all the amazing yarn colors available. My mind is buzzing with more crochet projects. I realized I needed some yarn swatches to arrange my colors so I decided to make little wallets containing my leftover pieces of yarn. I headed to my craft desk and my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® adhesives.

Yarn Swatch Wallet Step Outs

You can use a die to create pockets/wallets and trim down the edges or recreate by folding a piece of card and cutting a line for the closure insert.

Next, die cut a heart aperture into the cover, you could also use a punch for this step.

Put the wallet to one side and then die cut three small rectangles. Layer and affix these on top of each other to create a rigid rectangle. MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser is perfect for this. This dispenser has a unique fold-away design, ideal for traveling to crops and bonus: you can personalize the dispenser too.

Onto the front and back of the rectangles affix Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch.

Remove the backing and wrap yarn around, it sticks very firmly which is perfect.

Continue this for all the colors you need.

Inside your wallet affix a rectangle with yarn color name with Crafty Power Tape.  I typed these names and printed on my computer and die cut the rectangles. You could hand write if you prefer.

Again, using the super strong Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2 inch affix the yarn swatch inside the wallet.
