Since I made my friend a little wallet, I needed to wrap it in something cute. I decided a little gift bag would be just the thing. I cut a strip of fabric about 7 x 20, this will be enough for two bags.
I folded the material in half so the bottom of the fold will be the bottom of the bag. I then serged the sides. Regular straight stitch would works well too, but I wanted this to be quick and clean.
I folded over the top to make a hem and straight stitched.
I placed a ribbon about a 1/3 from the top and folded it in 1/2 to find the center and sewed it on with a straight stitch.
