So, ignore the Christmas fabric, and focus instead on all the cute scraps in your stash that could be made into easy gift bags! The great thing is that these can be any size you want, so start stash-busting!
Start with a rectangle of fabric, and fold each of the short ends over about an inch and iron.
Then stitch, about 3/4 inch to an inch away from the top. This will make the casing for your drawstring.
And yes, I forgot to take a picture of the end result. So, I will provide you with a photo from the Easy Christmas Crafts website!
