Boxy Bags - Quick DIY Spa Bags for Guys or Gals

Gifts made from your hands are the best and will be the most cherished of gifts. These easy to sew toiletries bags make the perfect spa bag for her or shaving bag for him. 

They make great use of fabric scraps or remnants with brightly colored contrast zippers and tabs for variety. Pretty floral patterns for the girl's bags and rugged camo or denim fabric for the boys.

This year I had 35 on my list so the assembly line was employed to make quick work of the job. I filled the Spa bags with my hand crocheted wash cloths, scented soaps, bath salts an aromatherapy candle and herb tea bags. The guys bags were filled with shaving stuff and hand knit wool socks. The possibilities are limitless. 

And so easy to wrap! Just tie a ribbon around the bag and you are good to go!

Find the tutorial to make these wonderful little bags at SoChick blog. Her visual tutorial is so easy to follow you will be a pro after the first try.


  1. One of the first projects my daughter made when she was learning to sew. So easy to make and great for all year giving too!

  2. I love this idea! (Makes note for next Christmas; this one is in the bag. :)

  3. This is an awesome homemade gift idea. Filling the bag with little extras is awesome too! I received a bag like this with my name embroidered on it. I still use it today and it is so cute. Also you can never have too many toiletry bags! Thanks for sharing this, it is a great idea for a thoughtful gift.
