Therefore, I began with snipping around the 3 sides, removing the zipper. I then stitched hems on each side. Also, I did press in between, before each sewing and clipped down to hold it places while sewing. I next took another fold on the top and bottom to create an insert section on each end. However, you could just have one opening and make a side bow or do two sides open and still use on the side or both to make bows on both ends. In my final bag, I just made one side with a big bow.
*****Also for those ends, when flipping the project inside out, I normally use the hack of an inexpensive butter knife, dull is best. It's very easy to use and doesn't cost more to get out the corners, but with a light hand so you don't push through a thin fabric. However, it is an excellent tool for thick fabrics and works wonders for tight spots*****
Afterward, I sewed the sides up leaving the top part open for stuffing with a safety pin to get it through to the sides of that extra section. Now, near the end, it began to fray and ruin the end of the fabric so I just used scissors to trim it off and voila! All good now, without any problem.
Finally, insert the present and tie the bow. Next, add a card and it's ready to be given. Simple and easy, but fun!
