Make a… gift bag
CUT your stitched aida so that you have 7cm (2¾in) above the design, 2.5cm (1in) below the design and 6.5cm (2½in) either side of the design. Fray the top edge of the bag, removing six aida squares.
PLACE right-sides together, putting the back seams together, and with a small seam allowance sew down this seam. Flatten the bag with the seam at the back, and then sew across the bottom of the bag. Turn to the right side and attach the wooden tree shape. Fold down the top of the bag.
