Xmas bags

Here are my family's presents all ready for them in fabric gift bags rather than wrapping paper. I originally planned to make these bags for everyone but only got the free time after Xmas so made them for my parents and brother and sister-in-law who we're not exchanging presents with until tomorrow.

You'll have to wait to see what I made for inside these ones, just in case my family spots my blog before we see them ;)

I found the tutorial to make the gift bags here. They are so easy to make and look and feel lovely. My aim is to do this for all presents throughout the year from now on. I may not manage it for every present due to lack of time but I'm going to try my best. I just think they're so much nicer than paper as they're like part of the present themselves. Of course they're more environmentally friendly too as they're reusable!

These are lovely! wish I'd had the time to do something similar. My new year's resolution is to MAKE time to be able to do more sewing etc., it's got to happen, am tired of being tied to the housework etc all the time! Happy New Year! Jo

Me, you, the boys and the baby said...

Oooh, I'm going to give those a try during the year, gorgeous!
