These little bags can be whipped up quickly. The appliques are hand stitched but you can certainly machine stitch them if you prefer. They are easy to make. They open and close with a ribbon drawstring. These are nice for those odd shaped and hard-to-wrap presents.

I give you the instructions and applique patterns to make them in 3 different sizes:

Finished sizes when open flat:
Small: 5 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches
Medium: 7 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches
Large: 9 1/2 x 12 1/4 inches


You can use my patterns for personal use and to make things that you sell from your website, online shops, and craft shows.

All photos were taken by me, and all illustrations, pattern pieces, and instructions were created by me. You can not redistribute the pattern, images, or photos in any way. You also can not claim the finished item as your own design.
