Favorite Gift Bag

"‘Tis the season for gift giving! And all too often, that means waste - paper, gift bags, all the stuff we use to bring color to the festivities! Well, going green doesn’t have to mean boring - or not being able to present presents in a beautiful way. Introducing a crochet bag that becomes part of the gift - one that can be used for years and years to come - the free Favorite Gift Bag crochet pattern! I made the Favorite Gift Bag in just 2 colors, for a classic, unisex look that’s ready to give anyone from the office Secret Santa to your new nephew. The one part most likely to wear out - the handles - are just slipped over the buttons, making them easy to replace as needed, so you can keep passing this crochet gift bag around the family for a long long time. It’s a great stashbuster too - how colorful will your gift bag be? You can mix it up and make gift bags for birthdays, other holidays - whatever you like! I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern!"

I can think of so many ways to use this handy bag. Besides making a wonderful gift bag, I am always needing something to organize yarn for specific projects. The tall shape lets me stuff a few One Pound skeins upright so I can easily pull from the centers. Being a MooglyBlog project, Tamara has included a Print or PDF option at the bottom of the page, too.

I am in agreement with the designer. Going green does not have to be boring. This bag could almost be the gift itself. No matter what you decide to place inside, this gift bag will be received with open arms.

The tote bag itself is a great gift. This is ideal for the person that has it all already and is hard to shop for. This could be filled with everyday necessities or treat. Great tote.

I love tote bags and this is perfect to keep for yourself or give as a gift. I haven't made it yet, but it seems like it'll hold a decent amount of items.
