Santa’s Got A Brand New Bag Craft 6. Need a simple and sweet way to present your gifts? How about a fabric bag? The bottom of my tree is surrounded by bags.
Here is a close up that shows bags embellished with doilies, rick rack, old lace and jingle bells.
Although I don’t have a problem with peekers in my family, the bells do act as a deterrent should the desire arise.

The beauty of the bags is that they can be made to fit any size gift. The bags belonging to Mr. Decor and Sweet Boy have masculine trimmings such as wooden ice skates and twine. The Fashionista’s bags are a bit softer with velvet, lace and antique rhinestone buttons and broaches.
Now onto the behind the scenes, or is it “seams”? I had a few flour sack scraps leftover from when I slipcovered the chair for Sweet Boy’s room. As it is old material I couldn’t bring myself to just throw it away.
When I began planning an old-fashioned Christmas for my children this year a light bulb popped into my head reminding me that in the old days, packages were either wrapped in brown paper or material.
Gifts For The Neighbors
For the neighbor’s gifts, I had found a large stack of vintage cloth Christmas napkins at the thrift shop. A couple of side seams and I had lovely wrapping for a bottle of cider. I embellished each with a handmade corsage.
