Gift Bags for Christmas

I mentioned this weekend that I was working on a few Christmas projects to list in my shop. I finished them on Sunday night, and even though it’s been cloudy for a couple days, I took pictures anyway. It gets harder and harder to take pictures of projects this time of year, as our daylight shrinks!

I made four stuff sacks in Christmas fabrics, which will make great gift bags. I improved my design on these stuff sacks by adding piping to the bottom, making them a little more sturdy and giving them a more finished look.

The stuff sacks are 8.5 inches tall with a 5.5 inch flat bottom.

I also made six drawstring bags in Christmas fabrics, great for gift bags.

You can put a gift in them, you can give them as a give, you can use them as a purse, and you can even use them as a travel bag to hold toiletries or dirty laundry inside your suitcase. I made TEN of them so be sure to stop by my little shop to see more pictures of these reusable gift bags!
