Crochet Gift Card Pouch (Free Pattern)

DSC_2940

Is it just me or does giving a gift card seem just a tiny bit impersonal? Now don’t get me wrong, I give them often due to convenience and I especially love receiving them… but when time allows I like to add a personal touch to a seemingly impersonal gift. The pattern for this cute little Crochet Gift Card Pouch is SO simple, it took only half an hour to create. I’ve included the free pattern below… enjoy crafting and more importantly, enjoy giving.
