Pattern Description:

I adore gift wrappings that are pretty and stylish. They make giving gifts that much more fun! These simple drawstring bags are the perfect handmade touch for all those little gifts that are hard to wrap. Not only are they cute and squishy; they're reusable and eco-friendly, too! Each bag only uses 12-15 yards of worsted weight yarn, so they're perfect for stash busting. The original sizes of each bag are quite tiny, but there are instructions included for how to size them up.
