PDF pattern to make bags three sizes plus all 18 appliques in 3 sizes too! Even if you never plan on making the gift bags, think of what you can do with all these appliques! My gift and treat bags have been my top selling patterns since I first introduced them. That's why I thought it would be a good idea to combine them all into one super big pattern, at a super low price! You can now have one for every occasion or party. Purchased separately these patterns would total $29.70. This is a huge savings!

The sizes of the bags when open are:
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 them for gifts, party favors, treat bags, anything! It's like giving 2 gifts in one. Since this pattern has so many pattern pieces in so many sizes, I've made it very neat and organized by marking each pattern piece very well marked, and color coding them on the pattern outlines. I even give you a "document map" so you will be able to find exactly which pattern you want quickly.

I've given you very easy instructions and illustrations to hand applique the pieces, as well as completely assemble the bags. You will be amazed at how quickly these bags are to stitch together!

I've made my patterns very easy to read and understand. I give you a complete list of everything you will need to complete the project. I've broken everything down into step by step instructions and have included LOTS of full color photos and illustrations. The pattern pieces are very crisp and neatly drawn using a computer program.
