Over the holidays I came up with this fun reusable gift bag design. i wanted something that would hold more than flat gifts and had built-in ties to so I didn't have to hunt down ribbons every time I wanted to wrap something. I added the mesh pocket as a way to add a holiday greeting or the usual "to/from" tag for when they go under the tree. I know these are winter-y, but I'm excited to make more for birthdays as well.
