Last week I showed you how I made 10 upcycled fabric gift bags for $1 from a repurposed thrifted table cloth.  Today I want to show you what I made with the bed skirt that I found on the same day I found the tablecloth.

 I found this white bed skirt at the thrift store when I found the red table cloth that I used to make upcycled gift bags.  The bed skirt was only $1 and has a pretty cut-out edge that I thought would be a nice accent on a fabric gift bag.

 I  measured the circumference of a box I got at Costco.

I measured and cut the fabric and then sewed the bag using the directions I shared last week.  It took me less than 10 minutes to make the gift bag.

Instead of attaching ribbon to close the top of the bag, I used a rubber band to gather the top of the bag and form a rosette.

 Voila!
 
A lovely upcycled fabric gift bag for a dollar.  And I still have 3 more edges of the bed skirt to upcycle and feature that cut-out edge in more gift bags ( I have a couple of ideas that I’ll be showing you soon).
