I have an idea for another Christmas swap. I’ll plan on posting it closer to October but wanted to give people a head’s up.

Santa’s Sack Swap

  • make your partner 1 reusable gift bag
    Fill the bag with
  • 1 medium crafted item
  • 2 small crafted items
  • 2 purchased sticking stuffers

Sounds fun! Will see what my commitment list is like in October. I really like re-usable fabric gift bags.

I am IN! It’s like a stocking swap without the stocking! I have no where to put a stocking, and tons of holiday cheer already, so this is perfect.

I enjoyed the old stocking swaps from craftster but I just don’t need any more stockings. Gift bags would be useful though.

And once the holiday is here you could reuse it and put gifts in it! Love this idea. LOVE it!

I hadn’t thought about that but yeah we could do 1 or 2 partners.

Interested! A sack can ship flat, makes it easier to-and-from and, let’s be honest, within Canada :smile:

Ooh, this sounds fun. But I am at four swaps… which is more than I’ve had in years. I am going to set back and see how these pan out…

I’m so bad, I just can’t resist … post it notes, Christmas stickers, maybe even bows because they are sticky :joy:

I’ll go to the corner now.

:neutral_face: Did someone mention stickers?! I’d join just for those alone! :laughing:. I’ve never made a bag before. Are we talking cloth bags? I guess you would be huh? Reusable and all. :thinking: I think I’d like to try this! I also have to see where I’m at in commitments at the time but hope to join in :grin:

That fold over one maybe doable! I’m going to give it a try also. We’ll see which comes out the best… I haven’t sewn in ages! Good project to get back into it. Thank you!

Our tradition (started by my mother) is just to make super basic bags in fun fabrics, and then tie them shut with a piece of lace or chunky yarn, so no built-in closure needed.

would knitted bags be included? I was looking at patterns like:
colorwork bag

dumpling bag

gift bag
