Christmas Gifts of Past

Christmas gifts of past...JudyL is hosting a give away if you post about handmade Christmas gifts!

Since my family consist of many travelers (myself included), I like to give gift cards...I know! But gift cards are easy to pack both for the gifter (me!) and the giftee (my relatives!).

In years past, I have made Humbug bags (left) (one pattern source here) to hide the gift cards in and another year, I made wonder wallets (right) (pattern here) to hide the gift cards.

Any ideas on what to make this year to hide the gift cards?!

There's a wonderful tutorial for making a loyalty card wallet (it would hold more than one gift card) at

http://spoonfullofsugargirls.blogspot.com

click on "tutorials" at the top of her home page, and then Scrappy Loyalty Wallet is the 3rd item in the list.

I've made these and they are wonderful for those quilt shop punch cards we all have but they would work equally well for keeping all your gift cards together.

You could make a tissue holder with attached hand sanitizer pouch.

How about the Lazy Girl Maggie - which can be made with a 'leash' type thingy majiggy for boys (men) to hook onto their belt or gals to hook onto a purse strap or on a backpack. Can also be made without the leash thingy and used as a regular wallet.

Those are both so cute and great ideas. I haven't sewed any gift card pouches, but I've knitted some and posted the pattern last year ...
