Here at Plush Addict, we are always looking for ways to be kinder to the planet. Christmas will be here before you know it! And this year you have plenty of time to make up these reusable gift tags you can bring out year after year, not only saving you time & money BUT also lots of waste that just ends up in landfill
Just scribble the name in chalk or chalk pen and then wipe it off and reuse them year after year!
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!
We are super excited to share with you this fabulous eco-conscious way of gifting your loved ones this year. We have three different sized bags you can create, here’s what you’ll need for each one…

This has to be one our faveeeeee collections of all time (can we say that?!) truly, Libs Elliott really knocked it out of the park this time, so of course we had to whip up some projects to provide you with inspiration on what to make with such a fabulous collection.
But not only did we give you 1 make… we’ve given you 3 different project ideas!
Take your organisation to the next level by sewing up a clear vinyl zipper pouch!
These pouches are SO handy and can save you time too as you can see exactly what’s in your storage pouch without even looking inside.
Use them in your crafting space to keep your scraps, notions & general haberdashery in check, or make them for the kids! The see through window can help save time, and add some more interest and fun for them when looking for their favourite toys or craft supplies… Ya never know it might just encourage them to tidy some stuff away too 😲
You can request the free pattern is sent straight to your inbox. The file sent will include pattern pieces you can print & use, as well as with the rectangle sizes needed to make this pouch, if you prefer to draw your own.
We’ve used fabrics from the amazing collection “Beguiled” from Libs Elliot and paired them up with some funky zips to deliver a striking pouch that will be the envy of your friends!
Sometimes Dads are the trickiest to buy for aren’t they?
