These are fantastic and were such a hit at my daughter's party! Thank you so much for working with me to get them to me so quickly. They will be used and loved for many years to come!

I love the print. Extremely well crafted bag. I love to wrap gifts in these and reuse them again and again.

About

How a terrible gift wrapper found a better way.

Welcome to the Blind T-Rex!

I have always been a terrible gift wrapper. I struggled and was so wasteful with wrapping paper. Once, while I stressed over producing what I considered my best wrapped gift to date, my friend watched and kindly asked "do you want me to show you how to do that"?

I gave up on wrapping paper, and switched to bags. Between the cost of the bag, the tissue, and the waste, I needed to find a better way. One Christmas, I made cloth bags for everyone in our extended family, and they were a hit. I quickly branched out to using them for friends outside of our family, and I was always asked why I didn't sell them.

In 2015, a meme went around with a poorly wrapped present that said "If it looks like a blind T-Rex wrapped it, it's probably from me". Knowing my terrible wrapping skills, at least five people sent it to me. And thus, a shop name was born.

I sew all the bags in my tiny 21 square foot Harry Potter "cupboard under the stairs". I am happy to be sharing these fun and eco-friendly gift wrap options with you. If you are interested in a custom order, please feel free to send me a convo.

Thank you for supporting handmade!
