While browsing one of my favorite websites - Lion Brand Yarn - I came across a free knitting pattern for these cute little Christmas drawstring bags. They are quick and easy to make using left-over yarn from other projects.
You could use them for a variety of purposes at this time of year, including:
- They could hold small gifts, providing an environment-friendly alternative to wrapping paper (and they could be re-used year after year!). Just attach a gift tag to the drawstring.
- You could put after-dinner mints or chocolates in them and give one to every guest at your Christmas dinner or party.
- They could be used as Christmas decorations, hung on the mantelpiece or even on the tree!
