Knitted Gift Bag

  Hello! and welcome to this month's Sustainable Pinterest Challenge.  This month's project is Christmas.  Who doesn't love Christmas? For this month I made a reusable gift bag. It may not be in the Christmas colors, but the recipient could reuse this bag for other occasions.

I have already made a bunch of these bags. I have a pattern for this small knitted gift bag and you can find the Pin for that here. I will use the gift bags for candy, gift cards, and other small gifts. If you know how to knit, all it is a linen stitch and it is done in a long strip and folded in half, and sewn up along the sides.

Here are other gift bags I have done:

I hope you get a chance to check out other projects.

  1. Your bag is very sweet. Usually this kind of bag is crocheted so it's nice to see a pattern for a knitted version.

  2. Very pretty and it's so nice to receive a gift in a hand-made bag or container!

  3. How lovely and well done, Julie! So many possibilities on using it! My mil tried to teach me how to knit and crochet, but I never had any success. I guess my mind wandered onto other things! Happy Crafting Holidays!

  4. Cute way to give a gift. Definitely eco-friendly & two gifts in one! Pinned!

  5. That's great that your gift bag can be customized in any color to fit the occasion or holiday ~ it's very pretty!

  6. Everyone always enjoys a handmade gift bag - looks great

  7. I love the colors! I agree that it was a great idea to make the bag in color other than Christmas colors, so the recipient can use it all year long and not just at Christmas time.

  8. These are so cute!! Such a great idea and can make them all different colours!

  9. So pretty. Thanks for sharing some inspiration.
