Hamemade Gift Bags

Gift bags

I know this is not a new idea, but I was hopping seeing my fabric gift bags, would inspire you to make some. (Here is a great tutorial on how to thread a drawstring bag)They were soooo easy to make. I made myself only use fabric I already had. I took large scraps I had, found two different fabrics that complement each other (but not too match ;-). I let the size of the fabric dictate the size of the bag. I just use twin for a closer, add a pine cone. I plan on making a bunch this month to keep on-hand. It is a great reuse of fabric and can make even the simplest gift feel special. I am I the only already thinking next Christmas ??? xoxoxo

Like the different spin you put on your parcel sacks with those darling pine cone trims.


What a great idea-how very clever!

Tracey McBride

Adorable!!! What a clever and easy way to make use of those scraps and snips of fabrice. Love, love, love them.
Hugs and love from Tracey.x0x

P.S. Theresa, I bet you could easily make these by hand~~even with no sewing experience!! I made a similar project to these when first learning to sew and it was surprisingly easy. Also, there is a fabric glue out there that I've used with great's called "Unique Stitch" and you can even wash it once it's dried for over 24 hours and then you needn't sew at all! x0x

Cute! I love drawstring bags and they do make gift-wrapping special! I like your pine cones too.



No, you're not alone!

I'm already working on my master plan for next Christmas - even though it never seems to work out exactly as planned...

AND, fabric gift bags are on my to do list!


I am crazy about the fabric bags. Yours are wonderful! Love that great fabric. I wanted to make some for Christmas, but that was one of the tasks that I didn't get to. You've inspired me to use them for Valentines Day. Lisa

Gift bags are great, I think they're a brilliant way to present a gift and the recipient can use it forever. You are brilliant, as always.


fun gift bags. The pine cones add a wonderful finishing touch.

So cute.


I have received gift bags, but never made them. They are so cute and "sew" easy! Thanks for the reminder and the inspiration.

I love your gift ideas. I make a lot of my gifts and like new ideas! Thanks!


Very cute! I like the twine for the drawstring too!



They are adorable! Wish I knew how to sew. They'd be perfect for my little creations. :) Theresa


Very pretty Ms. Storybook. I love the pinecone addition too!
