If you're making the bags and boxes yourself, you can decorate the fabric either before or after sewing. Lay cardboard between the layers of fabric so that your design only appears on the side you want it, then draw your favourite design on the fabric with the edding textile marker.
Allow the design to dry and iron it (without steam) for a couple of minutes to fix it. After fixing, your design is washable up to 60°C and the intense colours of the edding textile markers won't fade.
