What do you get when you take some felt in garish colours, some chalkboard fabric, some eyelets and the scraps of fabric left over from last week's serviette sewing class?
Reusable gift tag gift bags of course...!

2. Cut one piece of chalkboard fabric just smaller than the felt. Stick it to one piece of felt. You don't want to use pins as they'll leave holes in the fabric.
3.Stitch the chalkboard fabric to one piece of felt.
4. Using the instructions that come with the eyelet tool insert an eyelet at the centre of the pointy end of each piece of felt. Make sure they match up!
5. Sew the two pieces of felt together wrong sides together. Leave a gap near the eyelet so that you can put your gift in the bag!
6. Place your gift in the bag and tie with a ribbon. I used bias tape. You can use whatever takes your fancy!
How easy and quick was that?
Obviously, these are best for small gifts. After all, as you get older, you realise that small things come in small packages!
