Christmas Tree - Getting Creative with a Gift Bag - Amazon Kindle Tablet for my Sister πŸŽ„πŸŽ

Sometimes, well always, I love to get a bit creative with the gifts I make and even the packaging. So, for my twin's gift, I wanted to make a bag for her new tablet, Amazon Kindle Tablet which I got her on Black Friday. It was one of those great deals, which I had to grab. In addition, it had a color that really stood out, which I haven't seen in any other tablet, Canary Yellow.

I finally had the time to plan an idea to wrap her gift with a fun and creative sewn Christmas style bag for this gift. Since this is a very thin tablet, which doesn't take up much space so it doesn't need a huge wrapping of fabric to make it. Therefore, I was able to work with some small pieces of material. The items used to create this bag would be the felt for the Christmas tree and some beads and a fabric star. Of course, the red fabric for the main bag. I did use a white thread for the top hem, which is perfect for the red, white, and green theme. However, I think it all came out great and will probably add a filling type material to fill the bag with.
Below are a few of the steps I took to create this bag: 
  1. Gather Material
  2. Measure and Cut
  3. Measure a 1/2"Hem, 
  4. Straight Across the Top 
  5. Press and pin or clip the hem down
    • Sometimes, fabrics stay in place after a press, and for small projects, skipping the pinning is fine.
  6. Sew the Hem
  7. Sew the Seam (the wrong side facing out)
  8. Clip corners(optional) or can keep for square style bag
  9. Turn Bag inside out (right sides facing out)
  10. Iron once more
Decoration on the bag steps:
  1. Cut out the shape from felt(color depends on the decoration) that you want to decorate on your bag and any other pieces that you need to complete it
  2. Hot glue gun plug it in and let it heat up
  3. Use it to glue the decoration onto the bag with additional beads or other material needed to complete the decoration
