Crochet Pattern: Gift Card HolderBy Emilee Gettle – 3 Comments
|I love Christmas and shopping for the perfect gift for everyone on my list. It’s a special time of year to show those close to you how much they really mean to you. I have several people on my list who love crafting as much as I do. Since we all dabble in about a 101 different projects at a time it’s sometimes hard to know what supplies to buy and stick beneath the tree. So, for the yarn lovers I crocheted this gift card holder that will be home to a gift card from one of my favorite yarn shops. This quick project adds a handmade touch that your creative friends are sure to love!|
