Fabric gifts bags are a special way to wrap a present and these fabric bags are adorable and fairly easy to make.


DIY gift bag

What you’ll need:

  • Fabric
  • Elastic
  • Button
  • Needle and thread


1. Measure and cut material to shape times two.

2. Sew elastic loop on the end of one of the material cut outs.

3. Fold the material in half – length ways and sew two sides.

4. Fold up the bottom and sew.

5. Repeat with 2nd piece of material except leave the bottom open of the second one.

6. Place one bag inside of the other right sides together and sew the top seam.

7. Turn the right way through the bottom hole you have left open and sew the bottom up.

8. Fold inside back into the bag and sew on a button for the loop. Your bag is now ready to place a gift inside and give to someone special.

These are so cute! I will be making some for gifts this year.

  • Im very new to sewing so looking for easy things like this to start with.


  • What a great idea. I am going to try make some with our old, worn out clothes. Do you think it will work?


  • wow i think that this is such a good idea. i also like how this bag will be re-usable after the fact. Thanks Jessica for this idea


  • That is something different and looks really cool.

  • What a great idea!


  • These are awesome, I have so much spare material lying around, these will be great for little party bags as well :)

  • This is a wonderful idea. The person who receives no doubt will find a practical use for it. I made one like a “dilly” bag and put books in it for a school age child who then used it as a library book bag at school.


  • Thank you! Now to pull out my machine!


  • These would be really cute for my baby Shower :)
