One day I was invited to a birthday party for a friend of mine, who loves to knit. I had purchased some yarn and needles for her that I knew she had her eye on. When I went to wrap it up I found out I had no wrapping paper. I didn't have time to run to the store so I thought I would make a gift bag quickly on my sewing machine. The Yarn was a hit, but everyone was impressed with the bag I made to wrap it in!!! You can impress your friends also! These gift bags go together quickly and easily. I have included step by step instructions with many photos to guide you every step of the way. These gift bags can be used for graduation gifts, baby showers, wedding, house warming, birthdays, promotion, holidays, engagement, any occasion really! Whip up a few to have on hand, and don't get caught without a way to wrap your special gifts again! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sewing straight seams and reading a pattern. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS This will depend on the size of shirt you begin with.
