With Amy’s drawstring variations and Suzanne’s incredible bagsket design you can enclose your gifts with style. Adjust bag and bagsket dimensions to “wrap” anything on your list for an environmentally-friendly (and beautiful) way to give.
We fell in love with Suzanne’s Bagsket Tutorial the moment we first saw it and we’re sure you will too. Visit Suzanne’s blog foofanagle for more crafty goodness!
