December’s little gift bags are the perfect present to wrap up something special for your loved ones! From home made treats to quick gift cards these little bags will dress up any present. They make gorgeous little gifts in their own right, knit at a small enough gauge to hold most trinkets (stitch markers or mini-skeins, for example). This is paired with a set of recipes for infused flavored vodkas.

Cannella is derived from the latin name for cinnamon. These quick little bags have the shine and glimmer to present little gifts in a special way. The beaded patterns reflect the spirit of the holidays.
