Like so many people I've become more concerned about my footprint here on earth. A couple of nights ago while Keith and I were at Hobby Lobby (you just have to love a man that will go to hobby shops with you) I noticed that Christmas fabric was on sale 50% off. We bought one yard cuts of three different fabrics and decided to start making some of our gift bags. They are reusable and still so cute.
This is the first one and the gift is now under the tree. All I did was fold under the upper edge half an inch and iron it, then stitched it down. With right sides together I sewed the bottom and up the side, then turned right side out and it's done. Mom described it as similar to a giant pillowcase and that's it exactly. Keith and I went out and did a very small amount of shopping today and the number one stop was Garden Ridge to get some ribbon. We put the gift inside and tied the top closed with a pretty bow.
And just like that a gift is wrapped in fabric. :)
