Crochet Gift Card Holder

Crochet Gift Card Pouch

Do you know what I love about gift cards? You never have to return them because they’re the wrong size or color. In fact, in my experience, many people really appreciate them and actually prefer receiving them because they allow the recipient to make a choice about what they actually want. They can treat themselves, go to a place they enjoy, and get something they like.  Win, win, win, right? I especially tend to gravitate toward gift cards when I’m buying something for folks I don’t know super-well. When it comes to my closest family and friends, I enjoy choosing just the right gift that I know they’ll love. But my neighbors? Well, let’s just say I don’t always have the best idea what they’d prefer. At the same time, though, I want to make a thoughtful gesture. So, I thought it would be nice to give a small gift card to a local spot and dress it up a little by placing it in a handmade pouch.  Here’s how I made this one, and you can too!

I promise, friends, this is an easy-peasy project! All you need to know is how to start with a slip knot and how to do four basic stitches: the chain, the single crochet, the slip stitch, and the treble crochet. You can find tutorials for each of these right here on the blog by clicking on the name of each stitch.

Chain {ch} 20
Ch 1 to serve as first single crochet {sc}, then sc in each of the other chain stitches {20 sc}. Turn.
Ch 1, sc in each sc. Turn. *Repeat until you have 8 total rows of sc.
Ch 3, skip first sc and treble crochet {tr} in next sc. *Ch 1. Skip next sc. Tr in next sc.* Repeat across to the end of the row. Turn
Ch 1, sc in each tr and ch in the previous row {20 sc}. Turn.
Ch 1, sc in each sc.
Fold in half vertically. Slip stitch {ss} in corner to join edges and continue to ss in each stitch along the vertical side and bottom to close the pouch. Finish off and tuck ends.

Once your pouch is completed, thread a piece of wide ribbon through the row with treble crochets. Adjust so the ends meet in the center of the front and tie a knot. Cut ends on a diagonal.
