NOW I can show you what I was making for my students the other day. Charmed gift bags! Aren't they adorable?
Kim Walus of Bitty Bits and Pieces designed the bags to hold charm packs, and the "recipe" can be found at the Moda Bake Shop HERE. Kim often has great patterns and tutorials on her blog (right now she has a couple posts that demonstrate how to make cute crocheted flowers and covered button centers). For these bags, I just used fabrics pulled from my stash--four fat quarters will yield three of these cute little bags. All of the bags were made with the same floral for the outside, but I made the linings, handles, and pleated edges from several different coordinated fabrics.
I thought these bags, which hold charm packs nicely, fit well with the Schnibbles/pre-cuts theme of the class as did the "nibbles" I put in the bags. You might want to make up a couple of these to hold graduation gifts or summer vacation goodies. Or bridal shower gifts--after all, it's getting to be that time of the year. Isn't it crazy how quickly the year is flying by? I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
