Originally designed for Valentine goodies, these mini gift bags are just as perfect for the holiday season. Change up the fabric and appliqué shapes and you’re set. We used burlap and cotton with ribbon forming the unique side ties.
Patterns for lightweight, flexible bags that can best replace plastic can be hard to find. Luckily, you’re a clever sewing person and can make your own – with a little help from S4H. Ours are made from two layers of quilting cotton.
This pair of foldaway cotton grocery bags comes with their own carrying case. It’s compact enough (just 5″ x 7″ x 2″) to throw in your purse or keep in the car’s glove box. There’s even a handy front pocket to hold a shopping list.
Yay for the cloth napkin! Our floating rick rack technique lets you fancy-up a standard cloth napkin as a gift or just for everyday. It’s fun and easy, and you may already have everything you need on hand to whip up a stack in no time.
Help Mom keep clothes clean and dust-free in her closet. Plastic dry cleaning bags left on garments can cause fabrics to yellow and many emit unhealthy chemical fumes. Our covers are reusable, washable, and so very pretty!
Lightweight enough to fold away into their own handy carrying case, but tough enough to take on the big grocery chores. We used bound ripstop nylon for a great set of shopping totes that work as hard as you do.
