Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I thought it was the perfect time to make some treat bags. Around here, we keep it simple on February 14. With both of our birthdays being in January and the holidays having just passed, we forgo expensive gifts or dinner out. However, I do cook something special and I like to put a little something together to show my husband and son how much they mean to me. These little bags are perfect for holding a few of their favorite things.
Before I get to the tutorial for these treat bags, I must thank Tara from Suburble for inviting me to participate in today’s Valentine’s Day Project Blog Hop with 9 other Canadian home bloggers. Details to follow below…
To make your own treat bags, you will need:
Fabric- cotton canvas (each bag requires a 14″x9.5″ piece)
Thread- same color as fabric
Iron-on Transfer paper (I used Lesley Riley’s TAP)
Jute or string (22″ per bag)
Cut a 14″x9.5″ rectangle of fabric for each treat bag you want to make. To create a pocket for the string, turn the top edge of the longest side of the fabric under 3/8″ (towards the wrong side of the fabric) and again 3/4″. Press in place.
