Crafter's Edge Stocking Die Gift Card Holder

This has been a crazy year around the world because of a virus that caused many businesses to close temporarily or permanently. With money being a little tight for so many friends and family, we've decided to cut back on Christmas gifts. 

This is a good thing, but I don't want to become a total Scrooge with a "Bah Humbug" attitude on giving...no way! Tucking a bit of money or a gift card in these sweet little 3.6" x 5.6" stockings will be perfect without going overboard!


You can make one or a whole bunch of little stockings for those favorite people in your life.

They are easy to make when using the Crafter's Edge Stocking die and Therm O Web's Heat n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive.


Step 1: Following the Crafter's Edge Crossover II instructions, cut out stocking sections from red felt. You will need two stockings to make each gift card holder.

Step 2: Only the front of the stocking will have applique on it. Using medium heat temperature, iron adhesive to wrong side of white and gray felt; let cool. My mini Oliso is perfect for small projects like this.

Following Crafter’s Edge instructions, place paper side of adhesive facing up on platform*. Cover as directed before running through machine. Run die and fabric through machine. 

Peel off protective paper liner from the backs of applique pieces. Place applique, adhesive side down, on right side of fabric. Press according to package directions until entire piece is bonded. Let cool. 


Sew around edges of applique using a straight, zig-zag, or blanket stitch. *To reverse the direction of design, place fabric side up before cutting.


Place stocking with applique and stocking without applique wrong sides together.


Line-up edges and pin or clip to hold layers together.


Blanket stitch or zig-zag around the edges, leaving the top open. Backstitch at the top on both sides.

Place a gift card, cash, candy or whatever will fit into the stockings. You'll make someone very happy!
