Save your­self some cash by mak­ing your own velvet Santa sack and fin­ish off with a gold rib­bon tie for a luxe look. This sack could also be used as a draw­string bag all year round. HOW TO:

+ Cut a piece of velvet mea­sur­ing 110cm x 70cm.

+ Turn over 5cm of fab­ric at the long edge and sew a seam wide enough for a rib­bon to be pulled through. + Fold fab­ric in half, right sides to­gether. Leav­ing the ends of the top seam open so you can thread through your rib­bon, sew down un­seamed side and along the bot­tom. Turn bag right way out and thread 1m of gold rib­bon through the top seam to cre­ate the tie.
