Easter Drawstring Gift Bag Tutorial

Today I have been making Easter gift bags and I thought I would put together a little tutorial:)
I cut out two pieces of organic hemp cloth for two bags, I just love this fabric, it is wonderfully soft. Each piece is 25 inches long and 9 inches wide and then I fold it over.
I found all my Easter stamps that my sister gifted me with and an ink pad and I was off ready to stamp!
Here we go!
These are some of the designs I printed…
I sewed the sides and top of the little bag and then I folded the top of the bag over inside and sewed that closed with enough space for a finger knitted chain to thread through.
This chain was finger knitted by my son Caiden:) Now cut a little opening for the chain to thread through on the inside of the bag, Thread a wool needle onto the end of the wool chain and thread it through the top of the bag until it reaches the other side where you started from. Pull it through and out and make it long enough so that it can be tied.

And there it is, an Easter Drawstring Gift Bag. Finished size 7.5 x 11 inches. I ironed over the printing to set the ink.

Any Easter items bought from my shop will be sent in a little Easter drawstring gift bag that the item will fit into. I will also be adding these large organic hemp Easter gift bags above to my Etsy shop for purchase, ready to be filled with treasures for Easter Morning:)

Have a great weekend:)

    I absolutely love this!!! Thanks so much for sharing. I was just brainstorming about Easter as I walked the basket isle of our local thrift shop yesterday. Your precious little stamped bags are so much nicer then the standard old baskets. I think it’s time to branch out and try a little something different for this next holiday. I’m gonna try this 🙂

    That’s an awesome idea. I found your blog through Magic Onions. I love all your crafty ideas. Easter has so much waste. We have been reusing our baskets. But, my mom always try to sneak plastic junk in there.

    Linda, you MUST be reading my mind. I bought a neat vintage full sheet set from a thrift store the other day with drawsting bags in mind. Now, I don’t have to figure out how to make them…..
