Make a… gift bag

Cross Stitcher - - For Your Home -

Step 1

CUT your stitched aida, leav­ing a bor­der of un­stitched fabric around the de­sign and a small seam al­lowance – leave more above the de­sign than at the bot­tom or sides. Cut a rec­tan­gle of fabric for the back of the bag the same size as the front. Us­ing pink­ing shears, trim the top edge of the aida and bag back.

Step 2

PLACE the front and back of your bag right-sides to­gether, and then sew around three sides, leav­ing the top edge open. Us­ing your pink­ing shears, re­duce and neaten the seam al­lowance. Turn the bag to the right side, and then tie up with a length of rib­bon, with acorns at­tached to the ends.
