Today’s craft make was inspired by the need to use up some of the many, many fabric scraps I’ve built up a vast collection of over the years. I can’t throw anything away so I was thinking about what I could make with them and I came up with this little ribbon-tied gift bag. It’s ideal for wrapping small or tricky shaped presents. I filmed this craft make for Housetohome and you can follow to steps below, or watch the video here.
My first prototype for this was a bit scruffy – I wanted it to be a bit more robust and also reusable. So I jazzed it up a bit and came up with this design to make a little drawstring bag to wrap tiny or delicate gifts.
