At Christmas, much of the focus is on presents. And this also includes having appropriate wrappings for them.
Particularly when giving gifts of money, I am always slightly at as loss as to how I can wrap them attractively.
So I came up with this pretty key-chain bag designed to look like a Christmas bauble. They are very quick to sew and can even be run up at the last minute.
And above all, they are an original way to wrap gifts of money or other small presents.
To make it, you will need:
A couple of pretty fabric remnants, batting, 1 zipper (minimum length 12 cm) and a fob clamp.
Once you have cut out and ironed all the pieces as shown in the picture, lay the batting onto the fabric pieces.
Now fold the two square pieces of fabric down the middle and sew them onto the zipper.
Turn over the piece you have just sewn and put it on top of the other folded piece.
Now draw a circle with a diameter of approximately 11 cm and sew round it with a straight stitch.
Cut around the circle, leaving a seam allowance about one presser foot wide. You can now neaten the edges using a zigzag stitch. Or if you want to make it really nice and neat, you can bind it with bias tape. This takes no time with the binder attachment!
Your Christmas key-chain is almost finished.
All that’s left is to turn it the right way and attach the fob clamp…
… and you have the perfect wrapping for your gift of money!
These attractive baubles make giving a real pleasure!
I wish you all a wonderful Advent!
