Giftcard Pockets - Crafty Goodness

Here are some more crafty gifty things. I made two gift card holders for iTunes cards. The pattern is super easy. I just cut two rectangles, sewed them RST (leaving an opening for turning), and turned the rectangle. Now you have one very long, skinny rectangle. You fold up part of the rectangle and then topstitch the sides. And then you're done.


I used my snap press to apply little brass snaps to the front. I figure they can use the little pockets for something else once they use the giftcards.




Before I stitched the two layers together, I embroidered the outer fabric for a little texture. I used the Embird Font Engine and used one of the dingbat fonts to add some curliques.
