I love the tea towel fabric being used for this project, but if you have large cotton scrap fabric..that would work as well. Make sure you wash the fabric to get any sizing off as well as dye. You could also buy organic fabric which can be used for food items. I love gift bags..they are more fun to give and are reuseable.

Wow. This is going to be on my gift giving list for sure. I love breads and what a great idea to make some fresh or go to a bakery and put it in this bread bag to give as a gift. What a great idea. Such a fast and simple tutorial and I love that you can use towels to make it too if you do not have fabric on hand. Why not make a few and keep them for that last minute gifts or t carry to a dinner at a friend or families house and if you want to be extra nice leave them the bag.

This is a super pattern for a really nice hostess gift. You could bring a loaf of fresh baked bread or a really good baguette from a bakery, tuck it in the bag you made and give it to your friend! This bag could be made quickly with scraps you have on hand, just add bread!

Been having problems with blogspot sites so went from Safari to Firefox and that's working. The bread bag pattern looks like something I would want to make. Thanks for all your patterns.

Getting a message saying I am not invited to view this blog. I would really love to read it, though!

Thanks for letting me know--I fixed the link so it should work now!

This is such a wonderful idea! Too bad the link is 'broken.' Blogger page was not found. Is there another location for the instructions?

Link still doesn't work, but I guess I could figure it out.

@Vivian B, the link appears to be working fine on our end. We have noticed lately that several users are experiencing difficulty accessing patterns from Blogspot sites; there seems to be an issue with Internet Explorer. We recommend downloading an alternate Web browsing software such as Firefox or Google Chrome, which are generally more effective. For example, I am using Firefox and am able to access the pattern successfully. I hope this helps!
