As you get your holiday gifts ready to give, why not whip up a batch of these simple fabric bags to use in place of paper gift bags and gift wrap? The folks at Bolt share a couple of different sewing tutorials for bags, as well as a list of ideas for other ways to use fabric as gift wrap.

This is a surprisingly economical way to go, considering how many times these bags can be re-purposed. Best of all, the fabric doesn’t have to be celebration specific! None of these reds and greens scream Christmas until they’re piled up together.
