♥ Handmade Christmas Gift Bags ♥
This year I made my family members little gift bags full of homemade jam, chutney, and fudge. I wrapped everything in this pretty wrapping, and put them in Christmas drawstring pouches I made from leftover material and felt. I stitched the felt designs on some red fabric, and them glued pom poms on for an extra festive look.
These are great if you are on a budget, because everything is homemade. A tip to save even more money - get free fruit by raiding the hedges in August/September for blackberries, I got 2kg of them for free by doing this on a walk home one day. Also if you know anyone who has an apple tree in their garden, ask if you can have any they don't want! I made blackberry jam with the blackberries, and chutney with apples from my Granny & Grandad's garden, most of the expense of these was the jars!
I think they turned out super cute, what do you think? Would you like to get one of these for Christmas?
