A Gift Card Case

Goodness, here's a post that was a long time coming. It's been lurking in my draft list since November last year!

So, back then, I bought gift cards for a friend's birthday, but I thought it would be nice and more personal if I made a little case to put them in.

Armed with leftovers from a fat quarter, some bias binding and felt (for the lining), I whipped up this little fella:

The most challenging part was actually topstitching the bias binding tape, as the case was too small to fit around my sewing machine arm. So I had to do it by hand, being very careful to be as even as possible. It didn't turn out so bad. :)

Such a simple make, but so effective and personal as a gift, I think!
