Gift It Then Stitch It! Christmas Fabric Gift Wrap Ideas

I've been having a trawl for fabric gift bags to wrap my Chrissie pressies and have stumbled upon quite a few different ideas.

The Japanese art of Furoshiki seems a good starting point and oh, so easy peasy!  Buggy & Buddy have a great set of instructions and include how to decorate the fabric yourself.

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?!
