Smiling Santa Gift Bag Tutorial

If you’ve been around awhile, you may remember the Smiling Santa Gift Bag tutorial I shared some time ago right here on Sewhooked.

Years ago, I would make these sweet felt gift bags for the kiddos in my life. Santa was one of my favorites, but I also made quite a others, too!

Here’s a photo from WAY BACK in 2000. Whew, thank goodness that Millineum thing turned out okay. 😉


For this design, I’ve taken my hand-drawn Rudolph templates, played with them in EQ8, and created a 10″ pattern to share.

Please be gentle with me. Designing applique using the software is brand new to me.

Make a quilt block, or use some felt and the Smiling Santa tutorial to make your own Rudolph bag! Want a printable Gift Bag tutorial? Get it here.
