After you’ve checked everyone off your gift list, it’s time to get wrapping. Instead of reaching for the pretty paper this year, try batch sewing a few gift bags in a variety of shapes and sizes. Not only is this an opportunity to bust through some fabric scraps, but fabric gift bags can be used over and over again making them easy on the environment. Once you’ve perfected the technique, you’ll be ready to sew gift bags for every gift giving situation, not just for Christmas. These DIY gift bag tutorials are perfect for those odd shaped gifts too.
