This little Polar Bear was designed to be a gift card holder and is a sweet way to add a personal touch to a gift card! If you attach a ribbon at the top, you can use it as an ornament or tie it on to add a special touch to a wrapped gift. You could also use the bear as an appliqué on a blanket or scarf. There are two hat variations and he looks adorable without as well. All the pattern details are free on my blog!
