Little Gift Bag

Here's a little gift bag I whipped up today in time for the Christmas gift giving season. I intend to fill it with cookies before giving it and some 'siblings' out. It's made out of antique European linen that I have had for ages but have never used for anything. Hopefully the recipients will enjoy it's beauty and continue to fill it with little treasures.

I was inspired by tiny happy's repurposing of fabrics. I started making a drawstring bag from a tutorial on another blog in another material. I was not happy with the results so made this little bag with french seams and stitched the cotton tape on through a gap in the lining before stitching it up.

I plan on making quite a few in similar fabrics. Very pleased with it!
