Both are great but I think I like the ones with the little turn down best.

no link - I just made it up

2 pieces of fabric, 3.5 inch wide and height depends on length of nail file.
Right sides together stitch up both the long side and top, leaving bottom open

So take to the ironing board and..
Add iron on interfacing to inside stitch line on outside fabric - so cut 3 inch wide, and length accordingly. Don't go all the way to the bottom, leave room for hem.

Iron and turn the bottom hem out - I did try and stitch these up when i did the sides, and this was a bit hit and miss as needed to be level when folded in half.

snip top corners

and turn the whole lot right sides out.

fold in half - make sure bottom corners meet, and turn over the top corner. iron all in place.

Take to sewing machine and top stitch. I just started on the fold and caught it down, and finished under the fold - didn;t go all the way to the top.

Then you can add buttons later. I sewed buttons onto one half, and then only did the last few stitches through both layers.

hope that all makes sense.

Exchange rate letting us down so unlikely to find bargains. But sure I will find something to buy.

Pen covers work for these too.
