Reusable Gift Bag, Turtle


Kids’ clothes are a wonderful source of nifty appliques, notions and specialty fabric. They’re cheap and often free to acquire. Too often items that  get a bit stained or outgrown are  just tossed instead of recycled. Making gift bags is a fantastic, fast way to recycle tiny garments!

Here’s one I made out of a toddler skort and two scraps from my scrap box. Just two quick rectangles serged together and around the top with a quick serged scrap ribbon.

This could be re-gifted over and over or used to store small items like jewelry, stationary, software, a game system, kids’ toys, etc. Larger sizes can be reused as shoe bags, craft and art supply organizers, and for china storage. There are so many possibilities!
