{fabric gift card holder tutorial}

'Tis the season for gift giving! I love adding a personal touch to the gifts I give, especially when I'm giving a gift card. I starting making these gift card holders last year and because they went over sooo well, I'm at it again!


-fabric - coordinating or not, it doesn't matter

- optional - fusible interfacing

-coordinating thread, scissors, sewing machine, hot glue gun


-cut out your pieces: one 3.5" x 3.5" pocket piece, two 4.5" x 3.5" pieces

(if you are adding the interfacing, you'll need one 4.5" x 3.5" piece & one 3.5" x 3.5" piece)

Step #1:

Take your pocket piece and fold down on side 1/2" and stitch. I used a 5/8" seam allowance. Step #2:

Sandwich your pieces - put the pocket piece in between the two 4.5" x 3.5" pieces. Make sure the two 4.5" x 3.5" pieces are right sides together.

Step #3:
Sew around the rectangle, leaving a 1-2" opening on one of the edges.

Step #4:

Snip the four corners (to make it smoother when you flip it right-side-out).

Step #5:

Using the 1-2" opening, flip your holder right-side-out. Make sure to use something to get all four corners popped out.Step #6:

Tuck the opening edges under and top stitch around the entire holder, closing up the opening.
Step #7:

Add an embellishment (button, rosette, etc) with hot glue. Stick the gift card in the pocket and you're good to go!!
