Roberta said...

Just love this idea of fabric wrapping for the holidays and I just bought 6 yards of fabric on Saturday to make my own bags for Christmas. Years ago I used fabric bags for wrapping all those odd and unusal toys for my sons when they were toddlers...then I used them to store my Christmas decorations in afterwards. Now I'll be making flannel "wrapping" that they can use as pajama bags and laundry bags, etc. Your shopping bag pattern is PEFECT for stocking stuffers this year ;) Thanks so much for all that you do.
Fondly, Roberta
