Drawstring Dishtowel Christmas Gift Bag

Good news!! We closed on our house! Finally! We closed late Friday and have been working on painting and other projects all weekend. We will try to finish a few more things this week and will be moving our stuff in next weekend. I can hardly believe it! I’m excited about the projects I want to do, but it will take awhile to get them all done. But a home is never finished, right? I’m sure there will always be things to do.

So, I won’t be having any Christmas decor for you, but I do have a few crafts. These are all pretty simple and don’t take a whole lot of work, but they look great and add just the right holiday touches.  These bags turned out so cute! I can’t wait to use them next year for my Christmas decorations!

I found my dishtowels at Hobby Lobby. I bought 2 of the same design, but you could use coordinating ones too.

I pinned the right sides together and sewed up the 2 long sides and one short side, leaving the top open.

Keeping the bag inside out, I folded over the top edges and sewed it, making a pocket for the ribbon to run through. Leave a little open at one end to run the ribbon through.

I used a safety pin at the end of the ribbon to make it easier to thread through the opening. I pushed it through by holding the pin through the fabric, gathering fabric and then pulling the excess back towards the beginning.

Once your ribbon is through, you can fill up the bag with gifts and other goodies, gather the top of the bag and tie it in a pretty bow!

I love how the sun sparkled in this picture!

How about a little bit of gold?

I really like how cute these look. I think they will look great under the tree. They will add a little farmhouse to your Christmas!

I hope you all have a wonderful week! I’m not sure how much I will be around, but I will try to pop in to say Hello!
