When Zilla was born one of the gifts we received was wrapped in a homemade cloth bag. That bag inspired me to make more bags for our family gifts. It has always seemed wasteful to have piles of wrapping paper left over after a birthday or Christmas. Here are a few of the bags we currently use:
Some day when I have time/space to sew I'd love to make a basic gift bag set for each member of our family. For example, Zilla would have green and blue bags of various materials and designs. This would simplify wrapping!
