  1. I would LOVE the instructions for these wonderful little bags for some Christmas gifts. Could you send to my email or tell me where on site this pattern is. Thank you very much!!!

  2. These instructions are in the new Interweave Holiday Gifts magazine.  I suspect that it will be quite a while before the instructions will be available online, at least while the magazine is in the stores or for sale online.

  3. Please I just love these and NEED to make a few for Christmas.  Where can I purchase just this pattern…… Does anyone wanna share the info with me?

    Thanks, Jane
