Quick and Simple Hand-decorated Gift Bags
Hand-decorated gift bags are quick and simple to make. It is easy to start from scratch and sew your own bags from small fabric rectangles, since they only require a couple of seams.
Unfortunately, many of us don’t have the time even for such a simple sewing project. If you have no time to sew, but still want to give your gifts with a little personal touch you can use ready-made cloth bags and decorate them.
Bags can be decorated with ready made appliqués or felt cut-outs which you can glue on. Embroidery paints are another option. If I have the time, I love to embroidery small flowers and other decorations with thread on the bags. Burlap bags lend themselves well to cross-stitch embroidery.
You can also glue charms, sequins and buttons on fabrics for charming, personalized looks.
OFS sells a variety of gift bags for your decorating pleasure. Many of them come in multi-packages, making them very economical.
