These bags would make great "wrapping" for handmade gifts, especially for the upcoming holiday season. Instead of a logo, you could iron on the person's name.
Here is what I did:
I started out with about a 32 inch (length) by 36 inch (width) piece of natural muslin (which I got on sale for $1 a yard). I folded this big piece in half lengthwise, then cut this big piece into 4 pieces, each about 16 inches long by 9 inches wide. I made my bags longer as opposed to wider or square, but you could easily make these as big or as little as you'd like.
Next, I cut out the logos I had printed on iron on paper and ironed them on the front side of each bag.
I then sewed up the sides and folded over the top to create a casing for the drawstring and sewed that around leaving an open space to pull the ribbon I used through for the drawstring.
I pulled the ribbon through using a safety pin and tied both ends together to secure.
These are quick and easy to make and give any gift or handmade item a special touch.
