How to Make a Reusable Fox Canvas Gift Bag.
I recently received some beautiful suede ribbon and embroidered patches from Gwen Studios
to create with. After rummaging through a “box of stuff” and finding a piece of canvas material,
I decided to make a reusable canvas gift bag.
Gwen Studios Ribbon is Available at Walmart.

- Fold-down the top of the canvas (lengthways) approx. 1″ and sew a seam across the top leave a 3/4″ pocket.
- Fold the canvas in half and sew the remaining three sides closed.
- Trim excess canvas and turn the canvas inside out to reveal the bag.
- Sew or glue the suede ribbon on the bottom of the bag.
- Iron Fox Embroidered Patch onto the front of the canvas using an iron set on the cotton setting.
- Cover the embroidery with a damp cloth and iron for 60 seconds.
- Turn bag over and iron until dry.
- Cut two small slits on the top pocket of the bag on each end.
- Cut two 24″ pieces of black satin ribbon.
- Attach a small safety pin to the end of a piece of ribbon. Thread the ribbon through the top of the bag, remove the safety pin, and knot the ribbon.
- On the opposite end of the bag, thread the second piece of ribbon through.
- Pull both ends of the ribbon to gather and close the bag.
- Cut two small layered tags out of burlap and cardstock.
- Stamp or handwrite a small greeting onto the tag.
- Tie the tags along with a small brass embellishment onto the top of the bag with twine.
The reusable canvas bag is a simple project to make for all seasons.

Great bag anyone would love.
such a cute project
I love that fox! Such a cute gift bag!
What is the 3/4” pocket used for???
The 3/4″ pocket is used for inserting ribbon to make the bag a drawstring bag.
Since the fabric is folded, there should only be two sides to sew closed, right??
