Gift Bags And A Gift Bag
May 25, 2023
Sally wanted a pencil bag for her backpack, then went on to make gifts, and a gift bag for Mother's Day
- Cotton fabric pieces, less than 1/4 yard each
- Fusible interfacing
- Cutting Table & Mat
- Rotary Cutter
- Iron & Ironing Board
- Brother sewing machine
Gather Patterns or Instructions and Materials
I had several offcuts and scraps in my stash, so it was time to use them. I had a general idea of what I wanted to make, but needed some inspiration and guidance.
Beginning with a pencil case, the search continued for other small, useful containers. Here are the ones I used:
Tea Bag Holder
Travel Tissue Holder
Following The Instructions
Following the instructions for each type of bag, cut out the fabric and fusible interfacing. The large cutting table with self-healing cutting mat is very handy for cutting out these shapes.
Be sure to follow the steps as described for each project.
Pat Yourself on the Back
After completing your items, set them all together and admire your work. Take a picture!
Then pack them all in the gift bag and give them to somone who will love them.
