Happy Holidays Gift Bag

Make the presentation as fun as what’s inside! Use a holly leaf pattern and a trio of buttons to add adorable appliqué to a lunch sack gift bag. Prairie points create festive fringe. Hook-and-loop tape keeps the flap closed and the gift tucked inside. Fabrics are from At Home for the Holidays collection by Heather Mulder Peterson for Henry Glass & Co.
