Santa Bag

Our Santa Bag

This is a cute Christmas bag that I made about 10 years ago when my boys were little. This is another bag that I received for free from one of my Dad's medical conferences. It works perfectly as a Christmas bag since the top is green. I love the drawstring handles that makes it look like a peddlers sack.

Here is the up close detailing. I put very lightweight batting under the applique and then zig zag stitched around the edges. I didn't think it looked "finished" enough, so I stitched on some of the black outline, so that the design would "pop" more.
Here's one of Santa's boots. I think this might be my favorite detail :)

Here's the inside of the bag. Can you see the faint outline of the medical logo/design that I covered up?
