    Petal Bags

    Every year my sewing guild chapter has a luncheon get together. I make small gifts for the ladies in my group and this year I made these little petal bags. I put Halloween socks in each one. I couldn't find the directions for the ones I made, it was a free pattern online, but I did find this site and her instructions are pretty much the same, except she doesn't have the little pockets on the inside.

    Is there a way to sew a handle on them to use as a purse? Those are really cute.

    beautiful bags you made. and so generous, even if the socks came from the dollar store.
    what a nice little bag and so prettily co ordinated!! great job on these beauties.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    There is a wonderful online person called the Crafty Gemini. She has appeared on MSQ with Jenny. As far as putting a handle on the basket/box/gift, I think it is the same pattern, including the inside pockets, I'm linking here sans the draw string. If you are visual learner I think you will enjoy this YouTube tutorial. While you are at her YouTube channel take a look at her other videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9WUYyLHpw8

    Thank-you lalaland for posting this. I so appreciate you showing the source it's so nice when members share the pattern name or source of inspiration! You are a very generous guild member to make these petal bags and fill them with a cute gift to boot!

    Prefer the look of yours to the unsewn corners. How large did you start your squares with and how far over did you sew your "petals".
