I saw the idea to make reusable sacks on Soulemama’s blog several years ago.  Ever since then I have been wanting to make them for our household.  I was able to get a good head start on these this weekend.  They are such a cinch to sew.
I find it so refreshing to be able to create things for my family, especially of the reusable type.

After they were finished, I simply sewed a ribbon on each sack for easy tying.  This would be a great beginners project.

I have also seen felt garlands on the web for a while.  Madeline and I created this one for our tree.  We were quite satisfied with our new beautiful decoration!

Happy crafting!
