A new bag for gift giving! I love this blue twill fabric it is strong & durable & a lovely colour too. I bought a couple yards so plan to use it making lots of bags this year. I recently saw (I think on Crafty Gemini) the idea to use a ribbon to dress up the handles & thought it was very pretty so I added it here. I used french seams as well so no raw edges

Nicely constructed! I like the pink strip added to the handle, and the design made me laugh! I always appreciate not raw seams too.

What a pretty gift bag! Love the blue color as a back for snowballs design. And I agree with everyone that the ribbon really does dress the handles up.... I'm going to try that on the next one I make.

It's a lovely bag. The blue makes a wonderful winter backdrop for your snowball appliqué..
I like using ribbon on handles, no need to turn them after stitching, just iron the seams to the front and stitch the ribbon over the raw edges; perfect.

Thanks Martine such a good idea & a great way to make them wider without the fuss. I think I will do it again since I quite like the affect. ~hugs~

Great job Loralye. I think the splash of colour on the handles is a particularly good idea. It goes great with the blue. The recipient is going to love this!

Very nice. The ribbon does add that extra touch. Cute embroidery design. I must say well done on the French seams. I admire your skills to get them right.
