FREEBIE + Ornament Bag Tutorial with Sew Mama Sew!

Last year I made little ornament bags stuffed with "bolts" of fabric for all the Bagettes. Many people asked for the pattern and the tutorial. Done. Finally. Just in time for holiday gift giving. The PDF tutorial is HERE. Thank you to SEW MAMA SEW for featuring it as part of their Handmade Holidays!

This is what they look like…
