I am in charge of a Christmas party every year for two school classes and always like to have a "goodie bag" of treats to send home. It's hard to find the right size bag, so came up with my own. After Christmas I buy fabric when it is discounted drastically and will use that the following Christmas. I can make about 45 of these in a couple of hours.
Approximate Time: about 10 minutes each bag.
Fold fabric in half, short sides together so it measures 5 inches x 6 inches.
Sew down the side and across bottom. Hem the top by turning under 1/4 inch, and attaching the ribbon on either side in the middle.
To make your bag stand up nicely, on the inside match the seams and sew across diagonally about 1 1/4 inch as it shows in the picture.
