    Loot bags

    Made these loot bags for the grands. When they open all their gifts they can put them in their bag, keeps everything together. They are 21x33. Thanks for looking! Merry Christmas!!!!

    I'll have to make each one three or four. LOL
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    what a great idea, I did that one year and did pillowcases
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wondered what they were. That makes sense now.

    Red face Loot Bags

    For several years I wrapped 24 small gifts numbered 1-24 for each grandchild to open each day in December before Christmas. After they were grown, I filled a Dollar Store laundry bag with various useful and fun gifts for each member of the family (all adults) for our Christmas gathering. Then, as they married, I did the same for their mates. Now that I am 84-years-old, I have done a bag for each couple or unmarried individual. They have such fun with them, that I won't stop as long as I am able. Each bag also includes at least one crazy item such as a coconut shell bra or a rubber snake. This year I filled 11 bags.

    Kimcatiou, thank you so much for telling us about your bags. That is one of the best ideas I've heard in a long time. Your grandchildren must be crazy about you!
