Default Christmas Drawstring Bag pattern recommendations??

I am (finally) going to get started on making re-usable fabric Christmas gift bags!

I do love wrapping but I find increasingly I just don't have the time or patience to get that big chore done. Especially for stocking stuffers...

Can anyone recommend a good basic pattern? I'd prefer drawstring with finished/hidden raw edges but that may be tooooo much work!

Many thanks and Merry, Merry!

This is a fancy one but really nice. It's a gift in itself. I double the size for big ones.

I you make french seams, the seams would be finished and it is not a tremendous amount of work.

I have been using the pattern which uses 2 fat quarters from Sister Chicks Quilting: https://sisterchicksquilting.wpcomst...g-Gift-Bag.pdf

Very easy. I have been added boxed corners.

I really like this one. You could make it in any size too. My grandaughters like little bags to keep there small toys and dolls in and this seems easier than making zippered pouches. I think I'll make a few for Xmas gifts.

My granddaughter uses one I made to hold her chargers, earbuds, USB sticks, etc. She said she gets asked all the time where did you find that bag.
