Pattern Description:

I love making these fabric fortune cookies to give out as a free "thank you" to people who visit my art gallery on First Fridays. People love them and it's a great way to use up every last scrap of fabric in my stash! Because my "fortunes" also encourage them to "buy art" and has my website listed, people might even visit my website afterwards and sign up for my monthly newsletter. In any case, I've always believed that giving away something for free is fun! I can see these used at weddings, showers, birthday and holiday swag bags, and for any occasion where you need an inexpensive, but hand made and unique, gifts in medium to large quantities. I made these as Christmas tree ornaments and gave one to everyone who worked at Craftsy after my first class went live in the fall of 2011. Once you see how fun and easy these are to make, you will think of lots of ideas to give them away!
