Hello Skip to my Lou readers! I’m Heather from The Sewing Loft and I am so excited to be visiting Skip to my Lou today! I’m sharing a super simple gift card holder that is made from your scrap pile of ribbons. That’s right, the left over bits!
I have to confess, I am terrible at tossing out scraps and trims are no exception in my studio! So, what’s a girl to do with a pile of ribbon scraps?
Well, I made a ribbon fabric! But then what? Since the holidays are here and I always give a few gift cards, I thought a gift card holder would be perfect. In my world, when giving a gift even the wrapping needs to be fun!
- ribbon scraps
- felt 5 ” x 7″
- lightweight scrap fabric
~Cut 2 pieces of felt 3″ x 2 1/2″. On top layer, draw and cut out your design. Place your top layer of felt over the ribbon fabric, pin in place. The ribbon fabric will peek through your window cut out.
~Straight stitch in place. Trim away all excess ribbon fabric. Sandwich your top and bottom layers of felt together with wrong sides kissing. Straight stitch around the edge on 3 sides. Back stitch at start and stop.
Thanks so much for letting me visit today! It was such a pleasure to share my project with everyone. I hope to see you visiting me at The Sewing Loft for more fun sewing projects and ways to use your scrap fabric.
