I stumbled upon another great blog this evening! It's called Confessions of a Sewing Dork. There is this great idea and instructions for making fabric gift bags for birthday parties. Check it out here. I am definitely going to do this for my daughter's up coming 10th birthday. Not sure I have a pair of khakis to use, but I will look! If not I'm sure you could do the same project with some other material....maybe an old pillow case, table cloth, or maybe some white pants!
