Sew your own gift wrap...

Books are a great present for kids - make them extra special with their own gift bag.   Eternally useful, book bags can do double duty as toy bags, or when you're travelling, somewhere to store kids' shoes or undies.  I sewed these with fabric from Lincraft - they take about a fat quarter each plus 1 metre of twill tape.

I love the way books double as cards. When you write a message inside the front cover don't forget to add the year and occasion!
