I've wanted to make reusable fabric gift bags for years, but never did it--I didn't want to buy the fabric and never make them, which meant when I felt like some easy sewing, I didn't have the fabric...
Then this weekend I discovered I had some Christmas fabric lurking around, and I made a gift bag at last:
Then I made some reusable ribbons from long skinny scraps I'd saved for just such a purpose:
(I'm amazed that I actually did this, rather than saving the scraps for a while then tossing them. I'm pretty good about making the knitting projects I plan (or at least using the yarn for something else), but so, so, so (sew, sew, sew!) lazy about getting to sewing projects.)
