More stuff for this bazaar in November, this is what’s on my cutting table: 49 Christmas bags, partly done. I layered 7 different Christmas fabrics and cut them all out at once. They’re all serged into bags already, turned wrong sides out still. All raw edged tops of bags are serged as well, so they’re ready to turn down and sew for the drawstring casings. I wrote a tutorial for creating 7 variously sized bags from one yard of fabric. I referred back to it and found I hadn’t written the tutorial all that well. I’ll have to fix it. It’s not inaccurate but it’s definitely one of those tuts where you better keep your brain in geer while you’re doing it.
Here are the fabrics I used. Since each yard makes 7 bags, and I used 7 yards, every bag in each collection will be a different fabric. This went a lot more quickly than I thought it would.
I’m hoping to start a few families wrapping their Christmas gifts in bags. It’s greener (think: all that Christmas paper garbage every year) and SO much faster to wrap this way. No measuring, cutting, taping, and folding the paper. Then measuring, cutting, taping, and tying the ribbon. Just pop it in, pull it shut, tie and label. Easy huh?
I’m linking up with TNTN WIP Wednesday. The button is on the right. Lots of very creative people share there!!
