Fill with Something the Recipient Will Enjoy!

Treasured scraps and bits of lace and other trim are perfect for charming little drawstring bags. They’re so easy to make and it will be fun to giving each bag it’s own personality.

The bags make lovely gifts filled with special somethings the recipients will enjoy. Also think of them as gift bags, eliminating the need for wrapping. And, of course, the bags are handy for storing so many things.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
