Crochet Christmas Ideas: Drawstring bag Pattern – Santa

Just had to make one more Santa themed make!

I’ve really enjoyed making all my Santa themed items over the last few weeks (storage baskets with beards and without beards), so I decided to do just one more (for now..!) and here it is – a Santa drawstring bag.

This is perfect for gifting things in this Christmas and I already have got a few made so I can pop some gifts into them.

Now its time to get a move on with my remaining Christmas ideas!
