Last year, I participated in a fun online gift exchange and made Sparkly Clothespin Snowflake Ornaments to mail off to a fellow blogger. It was fun to make something by hand, package it up and mail it out – with the hope that they would open their mailbox and be excited to find a present inside! I know I was when mine came in the mail. This summer I joined Craftaholics Anonymous’ Handmade Gift Exchange and make a cute Lined Tote Bag for my secret gift recipient.
- Outside Fabric (thick cotton canvas or twill) – 2 pieces 13.5″ x 14″
- Inner Lining (light cotton or broadcloth) – 2 pieces 13.5″ x 14″
- Cotton straps – 2 pieces that are 30″ long.
