Christmas Gift Bag

November 23, 2007 21 comments

Need a quick little Christmas gift bag? Check out this cute crocheted gift bag made from recycled plastic grocery bags.

I added a bit of fun fur on the drawstring and a candy cane to complete this unique bag. You can be creative and add trim around the top edge or just tie a bow as shown below.

This gift bag measures 6 inches wide by 8 inches long with a drawstring closure. Fill your gift bag with candy or maybe even a handcrafted item. Either way it’s a wonderful eco-friendly gift idea that can be reused after Christmas as a little ditty bag or even as a small handbag.
