Wow let me see how many bags have I made so far this year? Everytime I have some leftover fabric I put it away for a bag. This is a great way to use up those scrap pieces and just use whatever size you have and put in a stash pile for when you need one. I always line mine with a different fabric so it can be reversed. I wish I had made some more for Christmas presents but ran out. This is a fast and easy tutorial to follow. Make some for yourself and youwill be glad you did.

It is easy to find many, many gift bag tutorials however this gift bag tutorial is perfect and easy to follow - even the lining for the bag is a nice touch. Sewing a gift bag to carry that special chosen gift is of course itself a gift for the receiver.
