Fabric Gift Bags

Creating simple fabric gift bags is a great eco-friendly alternative to wrapping paper.

With just a few stitched seams, these bags will be easy to reuse or repurpose.



1. Start with small pieces of fabric. I purchased ½ of a yard of holiday cotton fabric at my local fabric store.

2. Cut fabric to desired size using Fiskars Comfort Grip Rotary cutter. Hint: to reduce sewing, fold fabric in half first)


3. Pin fabric with right sides facing, and hand or machine stitch straight sides. Turn right side out.

4. Fold over the top of the bag, and use Fiskars Pinking Shears to trim the raw edges


5. Slide gift inside, and tie with ribbon
