Wrap it Up!

Do you have some orphan quilt blocks? Pieces of fabric that didn't quite work in your last project?
Stitch them together into a gift bag!

Gather two fabric squares and ribbon.
  1. Cut two pieces of ribbon, twine, or skinny scraps. Pin ends to the raw edge on the right side of one square, about 2" from the top edge.
  2. Place two squares right sides together.

  3. Stitch 3 sides, sewing over the ribbon to secure it.

  4. Turn inside out and wrap!
You can use your pinking shears and work with raw edges. Or, finish off the top of the bag with a strip of coordinating fabric.

Sewing since I was 8...a friend of my grandmother's sent us a large box filled with fabric scraps. That was all it took!
