Santa and his Sack Gift Bags

Add a face – I used 2 small black buttons for eyes, a ready-make small pom-pom for a nose and a couple of stitches in red for a mouth.



Make a 10” drawstring ~ I made a simple crochet chain (but you could use ribbon or twine)

Thread the drawstring through the eyelet holes starting at the centre back

Tie both ends together, and pull to gather up

Fill with a few sweet treats! And gift it to someone to brighten their day !
