Before you know it, Santa will be on the chimney eager to deliver all his special gifts. What a better way to receive a Christmas package than in a very special Personalized Santa Sack?!

I’ve been excited about this post for a while now. This was my first time using flocked heat transfer material with my Silhouette Cameo, and I have to say it is possibly my new favourite product. A velvet accent is exactly what this Santa sack needed! I first tried using fabric paint, but that resulted in a hot mess. The canvas has too heavy of a grain and it really seeped under the stencil.
Creating a personalized Santa Sack was super easy. I used white Cotton Canvas from the Online Fabric store, each leather piece measures 6″x 1.5″. Below are the measurements before any seams are sewn. You can choose to sew a simple pillowcase style bag, or you can follow this tutorial to sew a circular bottom bag.
Before you do do any sewing cut out the Silhouette Personalized Santa Sack Cut file and iron onto the middle of your canvas piece, that way the seam will be hidden in the back of the bag. You can also purchase the metal grommets at the Online Fabric Store, each bag will require 6 (instructions how to apply them are included in the package). For the bag closure I bought a 50″ piece of rope from The Home Depot for about $2, then threaded it through the grommet holes.
I absolutely love how these Personalized Santa Sacks turned out! I can’t lie, weeding the negative part of the cut file is a little tedious, but the results are so awesome I didn’t even care (I still went through with the second sack).
Don’t the Santa Sacks look great on my DIY Vintage Sled (pssst… you can make one for only $10!)
To complete this cut file you will need to download the free font Langdon , so you can insert the child’s name. Just right click the box where is says ‘replace name’ ungroup or release compound path and then insert the name. Be sure to mirror the name before you cut! The Overnight Service font is Bellota if that part of the file does not convert.
NOTE: THIS CUT FILE IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY!!
This file is available only for SILHOUETTE users!
