I want to share this ......

In today's world everyone is turning GREEN , I found this blog Green Bag Lady. She had this gift bags that she recycles every year. She even gives you a pattern. I thought this was great on saving money for something that will end up in the trash anyway.
I have scrap fabric that is perfect for these bags. I have enough ribbon I have from thrift stores and my mom's stash.
Then I was trying to figure out how to make labels. Viola! Old Christmas cards or left over wrapping paper, just cut out the initials of the lucky person getting the gift.
I found this web site from Sew Mama Sew, during the big giveaway. Where I was one of 100 that won a bag like here.
She even gives a pattern for those bags. They're small enough that you can put in your purse, and pull it out when you need it. She even has a video on how to make them, to easy.
If you look on the right of her blog look for #7611, that's the number of my bag.

Love the bags = so cute! Now if I only had time for that right now. It's much easier than wrapping these weird boxes I have o wrap!
