Pretty Christmas Gift Bags
I came across some pretty gift bags for small presents on a blog recently and thought how charming they were. With a little effort I found they took little more than an hour to design and cut the fabric and a similar time to sew together - and these were my first two attempts ...
|Moda Chez Moi and Laura Gunn Santorini|
The bags are so simple to make (I will try and post a tutorial later) and they measure just 8" x 8" x 4" and are perfect to fill with goodies for the little (or big) girls in your life. They are reversible with a smooth patched inside and a scrappy raggedy patch outside (well - that is how I like to see them!)
To make these you will need:-
14 x 5" squares for outside
14 x 5" squares for inside
14 x 4" squares of wadding
2 20" x 3" strips for handles
2 20" x 1" strip of wadding for handles
1 10" x 1 strip for closure loop
I cut all the fabric with pinking shears and used scraps of Moda Chez Moi for one bag and the second bag was made from Laura Gunn Santorini fabrics (which I so love) and lined with Heather Bailey Pop Garden.
They are so cute!
