one package wrapped …. A DIY canvas pom pom bag

I am  leaving for Palm Springs next week with my family for Christmas vacation . I am kinda freaking, ok really freaking out.

After this past weekends workshop, I finally sat down and tried to get a few packages wrapped and sent in the mail before we leave . My to do list is so long and my nights trying to pull all nighters is slowly deceasing.

I have been taking little breaks in between sewing house pillows to wrap a few gifts. I need the change up.

letterspinktreeI had a few extra canvas bags left over from this past weekends workshop. They really are one of my favorites.  I have only used the small size, but these 8×10 are the perfect size.

I had a few scrap pom poms left over from my house pillows, I couldn’t throw them away . With a handful of scrap poms and a few canvas bags lying around the two were meant to be put together.  deerpackage2


  1. Fabric Canvas bags
  2. mini pom poms
  3. scissors
  4. hot glue gun ( I prefer low temp)
  5. twine / ribbon

To attach your mini poms to your canvas bag apply a little hot glue to your poms and set on your  bag. I like to start with a row of three and then start a new row of two.  Keep with that pattern going back and forth until you get to the bottom of the bag.

I tied the tree to my canvas bag using green twine.

Using my Maggie Holmes die cut I cut out the deer silhouette. Using my hot glue I attached the deer silhouette to a mini cloths pin and then clipped it to the green twine. I also added a gold bow  from Maggies Open book collection to the silhouette deer.


Lastly, I attached a letter to the top of the bag.  I just can’t get enough of them.
