packaged up with gifts
Last week I mentioned I had gift-bags to sell for Christmas, and I've been busy sewing the past seven days. I love spending time doing crafts and making practical, useful, and beautiful gifts. I get a blissful buzz from it.
In the top photo you can see what a few of the Christmas bag patterns are and what they might look like full of presents for friends and family. Although our Christmas tree will probably be locally sourced (ahem, from our property's uncleared forest), we don't have it cut down yet and displayed in our home. From past years, though, take my word for it--these fabric gift bags look beautiful under the tree and add a warmth and a coziness to the decorative atmosphere.
two sets complete with enough twine to tie up each bag, and a necessary pom-pom
The two packages above are a pair of 6 bags each, with enough candy-cane striped twine for closing and a fun pompom to add a bit of spirit and bounce. Each package comes with one large bag, two medium, 2 small, and a mini, too. Each set of six is $25, which is comparable to paper bags, if not cheaper. And get this -- you'll get to keep these forever, instead of buying new bags every year. If you're outside of my area, shipping is just $5 flat.
