How To Make A Sweater Gift Bag 

Dress up your holiday gifts this season with a homemade gift bag made from a sweater.  Make them in all different color and tie a ribbon around it to match.  Your friends will love it!  It’s so easy to make and looks so pretty!

Cut out  the arms of a sweater.  Each sleeve makes one bag.
  Turn the arm inside out and sew up the larger end.  Then turn right side out.  That’s it!
Now fill your bag with goodies and tie with a bow!

      Hi Linda,

      Thank you so much for stopping by! The sweaters make it so easy. The only hard part is finding the sweater you want! LOL

      Happy Holidays,

    I agree…what a cute idea! I love to bring a bottle of wine with me when visiting a friend’s new home. I think this idea would make the perfect “wrapping” for that unique bottle of wine I’m always on the search for.

    What a fun, cute idea! I just used some old sweaters to make scarves, but these are another great way to use up some old sweaters!

      Hello Rita,

      Thank you so much for visiting! I love these gift bags, they are so fun and easy to make. I get sweaters from the local thrift store so they are inexpensive to make, too!
