The tea towel is given added body by using fusible Shape-Flex. Since the tea towels edges are all finished, the bag is fast, easy and professional looking. Add the side pocket (or not) and make the wrapping a part of the gift!

These tea towels by Dunroven come in a multitude of colors and designs. I chose just a few in Christmas colors:

Tea Towel Polka Dot Bright Red
Tea Towel, Printed Polka Dots on Lime Green

The 1-inch webbing used for the handles comes in a variety of colors as well. I chose a couple that would look great as contrasting colors on the towels above.

Polypro Webbing 1in x 25yds Red

Be sure to have plenty of Shape-Flex on hand because they will definitely want to make more than one!
