How To Projects — gift
3-4 coordinating prints of fabric
Cut 2 pieces 3x3"
Cut 2 pieces 3x8"
Fold each 3x3" square in half on the diagonal and press
Place one of the 3x8" rectangles, right side up, on the work surface.
Place one triangle on each of the two corners at one end of the rectangle, raw edges matching
Place second rectangle, wrong side up, on top of first rectangles with raw edges matching and pin in place
Stitch 1/4" all the way around the rectangle leaving a 3" opening along one side so it can be turned right side out
Trim corners and turn
Press raw edges to the inside and finish pressing
Use 2 pins to mark 1 1/2" from the end with the triangles on both sides; this will be your starting and ending spot for top stitching
Top stitch around the rectangle, 1/8", starting at one pin mark (you'll need to pull back a triangle to stitch underneath) and go all the way around to the next pin mark (pulling triangle back). Be sure to stitch back and forth at the beginning and end to secure thread
Trim and you are ready to use to store business card, gift cards or to give as a gift.
