Gift Bags

Packing gifts in handmade bags instead of wrapping paper. The bag that becomes a part of the gift. A bag that can be used for multiple purposes. (Not to mention, the paper we save while using these reusable bags.)

  1. This was a drawstring bag I made for a three year old boy. Filled with some Hot Wheels cars, this little boy had a bag to carry his cars too.

2. When I had to present some Fancy Key Chains as return gifts, these pouches served the purpose perfectly.

3. It was a little girl’s birthday who loved to draw and colour. This dainty bag was made to carry drawing and Colouring Books along with some pencils and crayons.

4. Jute has a different feel about it. These large envelope style jute bags are elegant enough to gift just about anything.

T-shirt to Bag

Another t-shirt transformation project successfully completed. A t-shirt turned to a bag.

Processed with MOLDIV

This was a fairly loose t-shirt that I no longer wanted to wear. The string at the bottom looked perfect for a drawstring bag.

If you are looking for a 15 minute project, this would be the perfect one.

Using a roller cutter cut off the lower portions of the t-shirt, leaving aside only the neck and sleeves.

Stitch all along the cut side to close it. This becomes the bottom of the bag. Turn it over to make the t-shirt bottom become the open end of the bag.

Open one end of the hem side seam to reveal just a bit of the string. Have a double layer of the string which will serve as a the bag strap when pulled.

Fold the bag and put it into your purse. Next time you go shopping you have your own bag to carry your shopping.
