As I may have mentioned, I am posting questions throughout the day that will enable you to be eligible to win prizes during the Black Friday Sew-in. Some of the prizes will be awarded in a random drawing, but if I really like an answer, I might award that person a prize as well. My blog, my rules. If you object, don’t enter.
Task 1 / Question #2: Make a gift bag. I have posted a link on my tutorial page for a few years that shows you how to make holiday gift bags. You do not have to make a Christmas gift bag (kind of silly, if you don’t celebrate Christmas!). You can make a bag to use for birthdays or general gift giving.
Reasons to make and use gift bags:
- Festive gift bags save time during gift giving times, because they are quick to use.
- Great use of all that festive fabric now that you have decided not to make a Christmas or ___fill in the holiday blank___ quilt.
- You are not using paper that will get ripped off and recycled in a month anyway.
- No tape.
- Easy to open and look in if the gift tag falls off.
Fair warning: You will can only win or be entered in the drawing if you make a gift bag and show a picture of it somewhere.
