I don't know about you, but I never seem to have enough gift bags. I always reuse the ones that are given to me and my family with lovely gifts inside, but then I never seem to have the right style for whatever gift I am needing. Not anymore! Now I can make my own reusable Gift bags just using a little plastic, an iron, and a sewing machine. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!
When I saw Danas tutorial on how to make similar bags using grocery bags, I knew that I just had to do it.
I have been saving up all my target bags, but I think as of right now I only have 4-5. It will take me a really long time to get the amount that I need.
When I saw the bags that my chair covers (I have a wedding coming up this weekend and needed to purchase black chair covers for it) came it, I knew what I had to do with all 100 of them
Each chair cover bag measures 13x10 inches. Plus they are clear, but they do have a little sticker in the middle that I could not get off without ripping the bag. I ironed together 4 bags at a time. Then cut them down to the size that I needed. I serged around the edges, then sewed the bag together.
I used an applique that goes to this blanket for the heart.
Just like Dana said, it is easy but a little time consuming (especially if you are doing a million projects all at the same time :)
