It would be wonderful if we could make handmade gifts for every single person in our lives each and every year. However, that’s just not possible for most of us. What’s a good compromise? Crochet your own gift bags and boxes to help package your store-bought gifts!
Crochet gift bags are quick and easy to work up. More importantly, they add a personalized handmade touch to items. As an added bonus, they are a sustainable, reusable packaging option — go green is fun!
Here are 18 patterns for crochet Christmas gift bags, boxes and more.
