Scandi Table Treat Bags Sewing Project

You will need

Seam allowance: 10mm 

How to Make 

  1. Cut a square of the labels and turn under the seam allowance. If you’re using a fat quarter of Christmas fabric instead, cut a square approximately 9.5cm square and follow the above.
  2. Cut two pieces measuring 16cm x 28cm from the calico. Place the label on the front part approx. 12cm down from the top and centred. Stitch around the label to secure.
  3. Cut a piece of ribbon and position underneath, then sew around with a narrow seam allowance of about 3mm.
  4. Turn over the top of the bag 4cm on the inside and sew across.
  5. With right sides together sew around the sides and bottom of the bag then press and turn out.
  6. Fill with goodies and tie with ribbon at the top.
