Are you looking for an alternative to wrapping paper this Christmas? Have you thought about making your own Christmas gift bags?
These reusable drawstring bags are a unique and interesting way to wrap a gift. Not only do they look great sitting under the Christmas tree, they're very easy to use too. Simply place your gift inside, pull the drawstring closed, then, if you wish, tie the drawstring in a bow, and you're done!
No more messing around with paper that rips or crinkles in the wrong place, or trying to find the end of the sticky tape!
Then, when Christmas is over, the recipient can either use the bag themselves for storage, or re-use it as a gift bag for someone else next year!
Being fully lined these bags are thick and strong. The double drawstring and boxed (flat) bottom give them a neat, professional finish so if you didn't want to use them as a gift bag they would make a beautiful gift in themselves.
They aren't limited to Christmas either, by using different fabric prints they can be used for any occasion throughout the year.
There are three sizes included in the pattern as well as instructions for a DIY drawstring, or you can simply use store bought ribbon, cord or other similar material.
If you haven't already got your gift wrapping sorted, why not consider something different this year. Making these drawstring Christmas bags will be a fun and easy sewing project for you, and a delightful surprise for the recipient on Christmas morning.
