Cookie Gift Bag Pattern & Tutorial

 Do you make a lot of sweet treats? Not sure how to package them? Here’s a quick and simple little sewing project for you.
These sweet little bags don’t just have to have cookies packaged inside, you could put some of my fudgy rocky road, or perhaps some button biscuits  or some other delicious home-baked goodie that’s your signature treat.

Here’s what you’ll need:-


1 x fabric 13″ long by 4″ wide for the base
1 x netting 13″ long by 9″ wide for the top half of bag
Two 1/2″ wide x 9″ long ribbon to match the fabric in the bag.
1 x wide ric rac 13″ long, either a contrast or colour matching the fabric in the bag.


 Seam allowance is 1/4″

1. Align the netting and the fabric along the 13″ raw edge. Pin in place.

2. Sew the netting to the fabric with a medium machine stitch.

3. Press the seam towards the fabric.

3. Place ric rac along the seam on the right side of the fabric- making sure you cover the  seam with the ric rac. Pin in place.

4. Sew the ric rac over the seam. (Use either a straight or zig-zag stitch).

Sewing the Ribbon in Place.

The two pieces of ribbon are wrapped around the top of the bag and tied in a bow to make a closure for the bag.

Measure 3″ from the top of the netting down one side of the bag front and mark with a pencil.

This is the placement line for the ribbon.

Pin the two pieces of ribbon, together and horizontally, to the bag front at this pencil mark.

Fold the bag front in half length ways, right sides together to measure 12″ x 7-1/2″. Ribbons should be tucked inside.

Sew the front at the long side with 1/4″ seam. Sew again along the bottom with 1/4″ seam.

You may like to put a gusset in the bottom of the bag.

 It will work just as well without one, but I find a gusset will make room for the biscuits to sit flat in the bottom of the bag.


Draw a horizontal line at the 1″ mark. Sew across this line through all thicknesses.

Trim leaving a 1/4″ seam.

Turn right side out.

Press carefully (the netting should be O.K. to press- but if you’re unsure, press with a warm iron only).

 This gives you a flat bottom for your bag.

Place your cookies into your gorgeous new cookie bag, wrap the ribbon around the top and tie in a cute bow.

Add a gift tag or your “Made By…” label.

You could even add a little embroidery design in a patch sewn to the front of the Cookie Bag to make it an extra special gift.
