This something special gift bag is beautiful. My partner and I have loads of lavender growing out in our back garden- it is great for attracting the bees and butterflies. But I was thinking of knitting some of these sachets and filling them with the lavender to pop in to drawers in the house.

These are the most adorable gift bags and you can make them in different sizes with different yarns. It will make a great stash buster. I will make them to hold things when I travel and it you make big enough it would make a nice project holder for your knitting and/or crocheting. And of course great gift bags. In fact I might make some up for the holidays and fill it with odds and ends for my crafting buddies. Thank you.

These are just great. I can think of so many uses for them. They would be great for gifting anything breakable. Like a bottle of wine. Or a dish etc. they are not that hard to make and you can do them in any color you like. I like the idea of making up a bunch to have handy.

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.
