How to Sew a Mini Lined Gift Bag
This tutorial was created by Hooked on Sewing, a sister site to The Birch Cottage. You’ll find the full tutorial and video on Hooked on Sewing.
This sewing tutorial is for small or mini lined gift bag. The skills you need to have to sew this pillowcase is:
- Know how to thread your sewing machine.
- How to load a bobbin (or maybe how to wind a bobbin) in your sewing machine.
- Know how to sew a straight stitch.
- And know how to use a seam ripper.
Obviously, you’ll need a sewing machine if you’re going to make a gift bag. If you haven’t yet purchased a sewing machine, you can read about what to look for in a sewing machine and beginner friendly sewing machine recommendations. (Both of these tutorials can be found on Hooked on Sewing – a sister site to The Birch Cottage.)
You’ll obviously need fabric to sew a gift bag. But, what type of fabric? I recommend that you use cotton, quilter’s cotton or a cotton blend. Why? Because cotton fabric is beginner friendly and easy to work with.
Here are the supplies needed. For exact amounts, see the how-to card below:
- cotton fabric for the exterior bag
- cotton fabric for the bag liner
- craft rope, twine or ribbon
- matching thread
