Use Them for Gifts and Later for Lunches!
Choose pretty fabric for these cute bags that do double duty. Once filled with goodies they are lovely gift bags. Later they can be used by the recipient as lunch bags. You may find other uses for these easy bags as well.
Select a beautiful fabric for the outside and a complementary one for the lining. Buttons and costume jewelry can be used for the loop closures.
While these are perfect for Christmas giving, they’ll be wonderful for many other events as well. Simply choose fabric that suits the occasions.
The bags are simple to make and go together quickly. Two sizes are provided by designer Cindy Taylor Oates of Taylor Made Designs:
- Large – about 9 1/2″ w x 9″ h when open
- Small – about 6″ w x 6 1/2″ h when open
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!
