These three little bags can be made quickly from pretty leftover yarn.

Perfect for slipping under the tree with a small gift in to make the present all the more special.

One version has a simple ribbed lace top and is written in two sizes and the other has an eyelet detail around the top with a beaded star for some added sparkle under the fairy lights.

They are knit in the round and can easily be adapted to the size you need for your particular gift.

Save trees, use your scraps and let the wrapping be a gift in itself that will treasured for years to come.
