I hadn’t thought about that but yeah we could do 1 or 2 partners.
Absolutely love this idea! I’ll have to keep my eye out for when the swap is posted
Interested! A sack can ship flat, makes it easier to-and-from and, let’s be honest, within Canada
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
I’ll go to the corner now.
And @geekgirl , cool idea!
Did someone mention stickers?! I’d join just for those alone! . I’ve never made a bag before. Are we talking cloth bags? I guess you would be huh? Reusable and all. 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
Yep! Cloth. here are some examples
I posted one here too.
This one looks nice and easy! Right up my alley. Thank you!
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:
Oooh, I love those knitted bags!
Especially the ones with the multicolor patterns (first and last ones you posted).
It didn’t even occur to me that there are knitted gift bags.
Sure if someone is inclined they could knit. I don’t knit but I envision it taking longer than a simple fabric gift bag.
Crochet I am not sure about. It would have to be a tight stitch with no gaps so you couldn’t see inside. Or maybe have a liner.
you are right – it will take longer to knit than sew (and I agree about crochet needing a liner).
I’ll have to mull this over & start early if I decide to join up
Oooh!! I want in on this one!
I should have an address again soon - this sounds fun!
I’ll be posting this in the next few days.
@TheMistressT made a cool gift bag if you need more ideas!
