Fat Quarter Gift Bags, A 15 Minute Project

A 15 minute project! I don't know about you but every year we save giftbags from Christmas. They go into our storage closet and then by the following year I am throwing them out because they are torn or wrinkled. What about making some fabric gift bags? They won't tear and if they get dirty, throw them in the washer. These instructions are for a bag made from a fat quarter but you could use any size of fabric to fit your gift. They have a french seam so they are neatly finished inside without having to line them. 

Double click on this image below and then you'll be able to print the instructions full size. And if you need Christmas fabric you can find it in the Etsy shop and it's marked down!

  1. Thanks Jennifer. I am going to make one.

  2. I love these! I've been making them for years and people really like them.

  3. Jennifer, how do you finish the top edge? Narrow hem? Selvage side of the fabric?

    1. Audrey,

      Duh, forgot to put anything about the top edge. I folded mine down sewed a hem. But I used the selvege when I could. Pinking shears would be a great solution.

  4. Thank you for such a quick simple way for making gift bags. Have already made 2 and they were a snap to make. Your generosity in sharing is greatly appreciated.

  5. Thank you so much for this pattern. I have made 5 today for xmas gifts to go in. I've not used xmas fabric so they can be used all year round x
