I wrote a tutorial for a Christmas Shopping bag last November. Thought I’d bring it back now, in case anyone would like to make one for this Christmas. They make nice gifts. The can be used to “wrap a gift”. Make one for yourself to put your Christmas shopping items in. http://anotherpatch.blogspot.com/2008/11/christmas-shopping-bag-tute.html
And if you want to make some super-easy-to-construct Shopping Bags that are good give-aways, here’s a link to my bloggin’ buddy Sunnie’s http://patchworkpie.blogspot.com/2009/08/fabric-bags-e-z-way.html tutorial.
