Amazing for a quick to make Christmas gift! This really helped me!! Thank you!

Easy and very helpful.

Love it, so cute and easy for beginners.

This pillow pattern can be adjusted to make Christmas bags that will replace wrapping paper. Just use Christmas fabric (on sale after Christmas) and make several sizes of bags. For beginners, green and red felt will also work. Then, decorate!
