After finishing the piecing of my Snow Happy Heart Quilt blocks was crossed off my sewing 'to do' list, the next item on there was to make a few gift bags. I think nothing is nicer than to receive a gift with a hand made touch. There are so many quick and easy tutorials to follow for making little gift bags that I thought I should try and make a few. Here are the results...
I used this tutorial and the two resulting little bags I made are really cute!
I did try a couple of different ways from the way shown to box the corners of the bags and I still have another idea to try, so I shall be making some more!
Speaking of hand made gift wrapping, I think you will go a long way to beat this really pretty book 'cuff' which Mary Anne of Magpie's Mumblings made and wrapped around the book that I was lucky enough to win in her blog giveaway recently. It arrived here at the end of last week.
Thank you for the beautiful book Mary Anne.... I am excited to try out some of the silk ribbon embroidery ideas and an extra thank you for making the prize so pretty with your hand made wrapping! I really appreciated it!
