One of a series of three gorgeous small Christmas Gift Bags (Santa Sacks) designed as an alternative to a Christmas Stocking. This pattern is so versatile and can be used as a Christmas Scented gift bag filled with herbs and spices, or alternatively filled with chocolates and small gifts for little and large people to discover on Christmas morning. Hang from the mantle piece or display under the tree. You will need approx 15 Grams of each colour for each gift bag. A small quantity of polyester toy filling for the snowballs. One pair of 4mm (UK8-USA6) knitting needles and 4 x 4mm (UK8-USA6) Double pointed knitting needles. 1 stitch holder and 1 tapestry needle. The pattern is written and charted.
