Two fast gift bags

I needed to make gift bags for a Guild project, and these are what I came up with. I like the soft feminine one best, but options are endless. The first one (black with stars) took less than an hour, and the second one (pale blue and pink) took less than 25 minutes. But I spent 40 minutes looking for fluffy batting to stuff them with, so I could take the photo! LOL Once I made just one, they are like potato chips, you can't stop. Make them from burlap with wine inside, or kids theme with little gifts for the car, or out of jeans leg lined with handkerchief fabric, terry cloth lined with ? with bath gifts inside. Of course, they are meant to be recycled and passed on.

Great idea! Better than disposable paper--and reusable!

Very cute! I was going to stitch gift bags this past holiday season, but didn't get around to it. This is a good reminder to start NOW so I'll have them when I need them!

Lovely bags and I can see how you'd find lots of uses for them! And since they are reusable you may never have to worry about wrapping paper again! (At least for your own family.)

Very sweet bags. Useful for all sorts of things.
