People! There are only 15 days, 12 hours and 18 minutes left until Christmas…17, 16, 15…you get the point! And somehow I thought it would be a good idea to #makeallthepresents this year, while preparing for our son’s 4th birthday (*sob) and finishing renovations on our house…oh and still cleaning, cooking and being a generally nice wife and mom. And then I thought to myself, (because I am a totally sane person) why not make Christmas sacks for the kids too!?
Someone save me from myself.
Haha. Anyhoo, all joking aside, I have actually found this season of Christmas preparation to be really special. I have intentionally been praying for the friends and family members I am making gifts for, while I create them. It’s helped me to focus more on the things that matter as we celebrate Christ and what His coming means for us! (More on that at a later date.)
So, back to the Christmas sacks.
Once I discovered that printing on burlap actually works (yay!). [Here’s the tutorial I followed.] I decided to make individualized Christmas bags/Santa sacks for the kids. I’m still a newbie sewer, so I don’t feel like I could type up a great tutorial to explain how I made the sack itself, but you can probably figure it out by just looking at the pictures. If you’re really curious, then write me a note and I’ll see if I can help. With that said, here it is. (Note: the red and white material is actually another bag/liner inside the burlap sack.)
I’m really looking forward to stuffing some special gifts into this sack (and the other two I still need to make). Christie 🙂
