Stocking Gift Card Holders

Hi! I’m Julie from 627handworks and I’m going to show you a fun way to present gift cards this season.  These stockings are also a great size for small gifts or even to share candy with friends and co-workers.   Easily add embellishments or quilted panels to personalize them even more.

1 Holiday Layer Cake (Pine Fresh by Sandy Gervais)

Optional:
Ribbon and Trim
Batting Scraps for Quilted Panels

Open up your layer cake and pair the prints into 21 groups.

Print and cutout the template provided above.

Fold your fabric square in half and place the template fold line on the fabric fold line. It’s a tight fit, but it works!

Choose your method for transferring the template. Some people like to pin in place and cut – I prefer to just draw directly on the fabric and cut.

Do not cut on the fold line.

Optional: Take scrap batting and quilt the exterior fabric square before tracing and cutting the template.

Take 2 cut fabrics and place right sides together.   Sew along the top edge using a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Optional: Sandwich a strip of ribbon or trim along the straight edge.

Open and press.

Fold in half and stitch 1/4″ all the way around leaving a 3″ hole for turning in the lining fabric.

Close up of how to begin and end the stitch line – try to taper off into the folded edge.

Feel free to clip the curves. I will happily admit that I didn’t and they turned out just fine!

Turn right side out through the turning hole in the lining.

Stitch the turning hole.

Push the lining into the main fabric and fold over the cuff.

Here are options I tried. You can see that even without quilting or ribbon they are super cute.

Keep cutting and stitching and before you know it – you’ll have 21 little stockings to present gift cards, candy and small gifts.

You could even string these together for a stocking garland!

  2. Very cute! And I bet you could easily add a small loop to hang it on the tree! They are likely to become a yearly decoration or get passed around the family year after year. Thanks for sharing.

    I didn’t know how I was going to give my giftcards “creatively” this year. Saw this last night and whipped up two this morning to get them in the mail and beat the USPS shipping deadline! What a GREAT idea!
