Christmas All Wrapped Up with Fabric Gift Bags!

How will you be wrapping your christmas gifts this year? Will you be on ‘bin bag duty’ again collecting all of the used wrapping paper & throwing a glitter & foil mountain out to landfill? Or will you be following our tutorial and making beautiful reusable gift bags and tags to keep for years to come?

And all the effort you put in making these will come back to you – we promise! Make these and be your future friend next year when your gift wrapping will be complete in a fraction of the time – whoop!
