Splendid Fusion Gift Bag

A few weeks back a good friend had an operation on her foot as was going to be housebound for a while.

I wanted to gather up some of her favourite vegan treats as a post-op gift, so of course I needed a gift bag to accommodate them!

I've had a few sample packs of Art Gallery Fabrics' Splendid Fusion squares kicking about for a while. So I chopped them in half to make 'bricks' and made an identical front and back panel measuring approx 15.5" x 14.5". I love the rich colours in this collection and especially the inclusion of that sumptuous turquoise (my friend's favourite colour!).

The panels were then echo-quilted onto heavy sew-in interfacing to give the bag some strength without bulking it out.

Then it was just a case of getting the drawstring channel and lining in, and finishing off with some drawstring cord and beads!

A satisfyingly quick and easy make (not to mention sustainable and reusable) and the perfect vehicle for transporting lots of goodies!

So if you fancy glamming up your gifting with sweet bags that can be used over and over, check out my free gift bag tutorials (just click on the captions below the photos to access the tutorials).

Happy Gifting!

  1. How absolutely gorgeous. I am currently house bound after a fall and receiving a couple of things through the post from friends have really meant the world to me. Extra bonus points because this is something to keep.

  2. I love this bag. Just wondering what sort of cord you have used as the drawstring? How thick is the cord?
