I have never mastered the use of double point needles, but this pattern gives me a new reason to try. They are so pretty and I can think of many uses beyond a gift bag. I've got some leftover yarn I could use up too. Any advice or a good video out there on using double point needles?

What a lovely idea to make these instead of store-bought gift bags. I can see putting a special piece of jewelry into one, or even some high-end candy or chocolate as a gift for coworkers or a stocking stuffer.

Don't like working on dpns, any chance it can be made in the flat or smaller circular needles thanks

using smaller circular needles as long as the same size as called for would be no problem that I can imagine

What cute little bags for little ones.

I love the pattern and the idea but I won't be using it as a gift bag. I will be making them as little purses for my grand daughter.she loves to carry her own purse when she goes out, just like mom. I can make her a bunch in all different colors so she can match her outfit.

#BestIdeaEver. Can't wait to give this a try. Plan to use for Christmas.
