It's all about the bag!

This year was all about the bag... or in my case the Santa sack.  I had so much fun with these sacks.  I even made my son's first Santa sack.  A few years ago I started making small flannel sacks instead of wrapping our presents.  My family just loved them, each year I find new fun fabrics and create new bags for each member of my family.  I had thought that I would get them back the following year.  This has not happened.  My sister in law confided in me that she gives them as gifts to her friends, she loves them so much.  So I guess I will continue making these bags next year.  In fact I will feature all of these bags in my shop next year.  Take a peak at all of the custom orders from this year!  Be sure to order yours next year!
 From all of mine to you and yours. Merry Christmas!


  1. Hi Janie,
    It's my first visit to your blog and I had to chuckle about your Christmas bags. I've been doing the same thing for several years and I too think the bags are a nice way to give gifts. I don't get mine back either and it's fun knowing next year you can make more, in different patterns!! Regards, Anita.

  2. This is adorable! I love this idea so much! I think I'll have to start this tradition with my family next Christmas, too. The Christmas tree bags are my favorite. :-)

  3. Thanks Marci. I can't tell you how much everyone loves them year after year. I hope my son loves this tradition as much as I do.
