 I came up with the idea of gift/jewelry bags when I had some gifts to give to someone special. I really felt this was just another way to express how important that person was to me and so I thought I would offer this to you. As you can see, I have been a busy bee.
 These sweet bags come in threes and each one is a different size.
 The smaller bag measures 4", the med bag measures 5" and the larger bag measures in at 6". Each bag is fully lined and closes with a ribbon tie.
 This idea is a wonder way to use up small pieces of fabric and your scraps too.  Bits of lace, ribbons or fringe can make all the difference in the look and feel, so don't be afraid to go for it.
 A bar of soap, some candy, or treats of any kind, just use your imagination and you can dress that simple gift up with a keepsake bag.
 Maybe I will work on a tutorial to share just in case you are wondering how to make one of your own. It's easy and doesn't take long.
If you don't sew or can't be bothered, but would love to own a set of these cute bags, you can visit my website at
Come on over and chat, or create one for yourself or a friend, either way, enjoy your week and thanks so much for stopping by.

Purses~Totes~Market Bags

 Purses and bags are a very personal item. I prefer to have a purse that I can throw over my body and have my arms and hands free. I have never been one to like a purse on my arm or have to carry in my hands. I think once you get use to a shoulder bag, it's very hard to go back to the other styles, at least for me it is. The above bag is made with a cute Paris fabric and vintage crochet work. I can imagine someone taking the time to create that work by hand, and I think I did it proud.
 I love the pink roses postcard fabric on the bag above. Bright and cheery, perfect for spring and summer. This also has vintage crochet work, pink and white on the top and a solid pink at the bottom. I think it's pretty girlie.
 Ruffles, now these two bags are just so stinkin cute. I love ruffles, but to be honest, they don't love me. Maybe when I was a bit younger I could wear them, but now, well.....not so much. But, on a tote, sure!! I love the inside fabric as much as the outside fabric. Pretty roses and lots of lace too. Both these totes are light and just so beautiful. I hope you enjoyed this post today. More totes coming your way in the next couple of days. I hope you enjoy, and as always, these and more can be found on my website,
