Home made Santa bag

I've been going to the post office with lots of boxes the past few weeks(YAY) and been feeling like Santa.  One lady at the post office even commented on how many boxes I had.  I've been using big black trash can bags( how attractive!) but could only get a few boxes in them at a time.  And they get holes torn in them, too.  So I decided to make a Santa bag!

I'm not very good at sewing but I can sew a straight seam, sort of. ;-)  I bought 2 flannel throws, stitched the bottom with 2 seams just for strength, stitched up each side, and folded over the top into a flap to run some cording through for a draw string.  I used an old drapery tie back in purple.  I tried to sew some black satin ribbon along the top but that didn't work.  I just had to rip that out.

I set up in my daughter's old room to spread out

this is the bottom

this is up the side

5 boxes, one 12 x 12 x 8, four 10 x 8 x 8

ready to go to the PO
I'm heading to the post office right now.  Then we go get our Christmas tree this afternoon. HO HO HO!!!
