The end of the school term is in sight – will you be making your childrens teacher a gift this year – why not sew up a little gift card holder! Vouchers and gift cards can be a little impersonal but giving them in a beautiful fabric gift card holder will make them extra special and thoughtful.

It’s a lovely idea to get your child involved, even if they just help with choosing the fabric and making up the accompanying thank you card.  We have it on very good authority that teachers of all ages love it when they get a little gift card, a genuinely useful gift – as there are only so many chocolates and cookies you can eat!  The beauty of buying a little gift card for a few coffees, a gardening voucher, or a book is that you can make a really special little holder for it that they can use again to keep cards in.

Here are our top 3, free tutorials for sewing diy card holders and simple wallets – perfect for inspiration as you may wish to customise your own card holder to make it unique.

You could easily adapt the front flap to make it curved or pointed, and to customise it you could embroider your teachers initials to the front.  This free little sewing tutorial is available here at So Sew Easy

diy fabric card wallet tutorial

This is more like a traditional card wallet, with space for more than one, so possibly more useful in the long run! These little card wallets are great when you don’t want to take a big leather purse out and just need one or two of your cards with you.  With a little gift card slipped inside you are sure to make your teacher smile 🙂
