Half the fun of gift giving is presenting your in a prettily wrapped package. This year, I decided to make fabric gift bags that are made from repurposed materials and can be used again and again. I have a rather large-sized bin filled with scrap fabric, which is perfect for this project. Red-and-white patterned fabric and fusible hemming tape are all you need to whip up this no-sew gift bags. They take less than 10 minutes to make and you can fill them with holiday goodies and gifts.
Cut one large rectangle of fabric measuring 18″ x 16″
Place the rectangle on a surface pattern side down; fold down three sides and press to create a “hemmed” edge. Cut fusible hemming tape and place on the three sides.
Press the top edges down. Fold the wrong (non-printed) sides of fabric together and iron the fabrics to create a bag shape. Leave the top open, only ironing the two sides together.
Fill the gift bag with goodies and gifts and wrap the twine or ribbon on the top.
