I've been having a trawl for fabric gift bags to wrap my Chrissie pressies and have stumbled upon quite a few different ideas.
Craftsy comes up trumps again with a couple of ideas and some free patterns for those who just need a starting point. These are cute and really easy from Shiny Happy World. They would also make great wedding or party favour bags.
Want something a little more complex? This is a really straight foward free pattern from Do It and How for lovely gift bags (and size up to use as a shopper afterwards!).
Why not make the wrapping the present? This is a great free tutorial and pattern from In Colour Order's Blog which gives you a choice of eight sizes! Would make a lovely bathroom travel bag, especially if you lined it with a waterproof lining (get a cheap shower curtain!).
All these lovely ideas now, and still haven't finished the shopping (eeek!). Just need to choose a lovely Christmas Fabric to make it and voila..... I'm done. If it was only that easy huh?!
