If you’ve been following our Sew Easy Holiday Gift posts, we’ve already shared our favorite projects for decorating your “Home for the Holidays” and staying fashionable by getting “All Decked Out for the Holidays.” Now we’re showing you some creative ways to wrap up those handmade presents to make them “sew” unforgettable gifts!
One of the best ways to give a gift is to wrap it up in a re-usable shopping bag. Stitch one of these up with holiday fabric, or use recycled material (like old denim jeans) to make this gift really “green.” Click here to get the downloadable project instructions.
