Now, let’s sew a gift card holder!
Supplies to make the Christmas gift card holder:
- two pieces of 5″ by 6″ quilting cotton prints
- one 6″ by 5″ piece of stiff interfacing (see interfacing recommendations below)
- half yard/metre of satin ribbon (optional)
- matching thread, sewing machine, scissors, iron
- the free template from the Homemade Holidays – Free Pattern Bundle – download it for free from my design shop HERE. (No coupon needed.)
Which interfacing should you use:
Christmas Gift Card Holder – Tutorial:
- Download the Homemade Holidays – Free Pattern Bundle HERE (no coupon needed) and print out the page with the ‘Christmas Gift Card Holder Pattern‘.
- When you have the paper template, cut 3 pieces: 1 from outer fabric, 1 from lining fabric (MIRRORED!) and 1 from stiff fusible interfacing – cut this one on the seam allowance to reduce bulk:
- Apply fusible interfacing to the outer piece:
- Grab the ribbon and fold it in half, then pin it to the right (front!) side of the outer piece at the spot where I placed the triangular marking on the free template. This will be the top part of the Christmas gift card holder. Use a safety pin to attach the rest of the ribbon to the middle area of the fabric piece, to keep it out of the way:
- Now place the outer and the lining right-sides-together so all the edges match and stitch around, leaving a hole for turning at the bottom part. NOTE: see the turning hole? It’s just at the opposite side from where the ribbon is attached. (The best place for it!)
- Turn right-side-out and press, making sure the unfinished edges at the opening are folded in, forming a straight line:
- No topstitching yet, first you need to fold the piece in half, like this:
- Now, pin and edgestitch around. Done!
- Tie a bow, tuck a gift card inside and get ready for gift-giving!
That’s all, folks! I hope you’ve enjoyed making this easy gift card holder, and I’m even more so hoping you’re having a pleasant, cozy holiday season.
