At the last meeting we discussed making gift bags for the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Minneapolis. Last year some of us made the simple fabric bags using the following pattern that a volunteer at the house wrote up:
These bags are used to distributed donated gifts to families staying at RMH over the holiday season. They had been using trash bags, but they would tear. And besides, who really wants to get presents in a trash bag?
This is a quick and simple project that only takes two yards of fabric with a simple drawstring closure. These babies are a great way to use up that "special" fabric from your stash that may have looked like a good ideal, but turned out not to be that great after all (oh, we all have it). Holiday fabric is NOT required and feel free to improvise and use a variety of fabrics if you like.
I will collect the bags at our next meeting on Thursday, November 15th and deliver them to RMH.
Thanks for helping out. The families staying at the house appreciate it, especially at the holidays.
