DIY Santa Sack and Free Printable

Monday, December 02, 2013

If only all weekends could be 4 days, I crossed off quite a few things off the to do list.  Including one Santa Sack freshly delivered from the North Pole ready to be left open under the tree Christmas Eve.

Once I had laid out the design and printed onto my transfer paper, the rest of the project was smooth sailing.   Just cut out, lay out the various pieces and iron on.

Want to make your own?  To download the free printable, click here.  (Don't forget to mirror print if you are using iron on transfers). You will need 4 transfer sheets plus one for the childs name if you aren't writing it in.  I used this 24x36 cotton laundry bag but you could use anything that would take the transfer.

If you do make your own, I hope you'll come back and share. I'd love to see it.

NOTE:  LIKE ALL OF MY FREE PRINTABLES, THIS DESIGN IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY.

  4. A santa sack that has "official" stamps! That makes it not just for kids- I love it for adults. There always seems to be at least one oversize package to wrap, so this will be perfect. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity!

  5. I love this trend I've been seeing all over pinterest and etsy! This one is especially cute and made easy by the iron-on transfers. I made one this year using fabric pens. Ha, it took a lot longer ;) Here's mine if you want to see: http://homemadeintheheartland.blogspot.com/2013/11/diy-craft-personalized-santa-bag.html

  11. I love these sacks and have always wanted to make one. I'll keep this idea for the future, or maybe even make some fabric wrapping paper from the prints? Could be cute.

    Great idea, hope Agatha loves it.

  17. I just finished mine - I live in Canada, and the local Walmart, Target, and grocery store did not have a similar laundry sack, so I sewed one using un bleached cotton. I am very excited to see the reaction from my eight year old son on Christmas morning - authentic North Pole items can only help keep the magic alive. I am making a second one for my niece. I think these will be beautiful family heirlooms. Thank you for sharing your design talents!

  18. I just finished one for my son. I couldn't find a similar laundry bag locally (I live in Nova Scotia), so I sewed one using un bleached cotton. I plan to make a second one for my niece. These will be a family heirloom for sure! I can't wait to see the reaction from my eight year old on Christmas morning - anything authentically North Pole can only help to keep that magic alive.

  21. Is it possible to share the jpegs?? I am trying to do these for my daughters using iron on htv using my vinyl cutter. The pdf is confusing the heck out of me. Candiceburnham@gmail.com

    1. Sorry I don't remember but any heavy san serif font would do. For example Franklin Gothic Heavy but there are a lot of others.

  29. We're having an early Christmas celebration with my sister-in-law and her family this year, so our boys will all be together! I am going to make one of these for each of them. Thanks for the awesome print outs! I was wondering though, why is the word 'checked' backwards? And do you think this would transfer as well onto burlap as it did for you on cotton? This will be my first time working with transfer paper. :) darylannkturner@gmail.com

    1. The checked isn't backwards - its just typed around the circle (so if you turn it upside down, you'd see it was in the right order). I guess I could have designed it to left to right on both top and bottom but this just made more senes to me.

      I don't think you can use transfer paper on burlap with the same results but I've never tried it myself so hard to say. Would love to see how your version turns out.
