The bags are made with my “Claus Family” bundle which includes 9 family labels (mommy, daddy, mummy, etc) as well as the word “Claus” on it’s own if you want to make them with people’s names. (Buy the font)

The SVG, DXF & EPS files have layers to make them flexible. You can use or skip the shoes, flip the hat if it works better with a name in the opposite direction and more.

Of course these designs would be great for so many other things! Make family Christmas shirts, aprons, decorate stockings, mugs and more.
