Tomorrow is my brother Mark's birthday. Last weekend when we were in the mountains, he had driven up with his family, but immediately turned around and drove back home because his back was hurting so badly. He pulled it a few days prior. He is still ailing, but better. I made one of these corn saks to add to his birthday gift.
All of the bags I have made in the past I have done out of fabric from my stash or that I purchased just for the particular person I was making it for. Use a fairly durable cotton fabric for best results. Flannel is nice too.
But this time, I purchased a package of three Christmas cotton tea towels. I used one of them for Mark's bag. I cut off the end to make it the size I wanted, and then used the end piece I had cut off, as a handle for the bag. I have not done this before, and I LOVED the result. Then I jotted down this little poem to tuck inside the gift bag so he would know what it was, and what to do with it.
