Burlap and Vintage Lace...More Muslin Bags

I made a few more of the embellished muslin bags for the upcoming craft show -- they're also going to be/are in my shop. I  love making them...each time I just spread everything out on my floor and let the creative muse take over! Last night, I put on my pjs, turned on Pandora radio and just went to work. The men were watching hockey or something and no one bothered me for a few hours. All I needed was a glass of wine, (but since I had some at dinner, I thought better, and drank water).
Here's what I created:
First, I added more embellishment on the Number 25 bag with some antique lace and a little pearl pin. Then,
I cut out a flower from the same antique doily for the back. (This doily used to decorate my grandmother's dresser, but I don't think she would it was very tattered.)

I made a couple more; they aren't quite finished yet, but here's a sweet little Christmas one I made from burlap and the same doily. I added a little "joy" charm just for fun and color.
Don't forget to enter my Royal Design Studio stencil giveaway here. And, stay tuned, I have a few other tutorials coming up...a vintage button Christmas tree and how to paint camouflage on a bookcase. (How's that for diversity?) Linking to: Faded Charm

These are precious! I love the Christmas tree you made. I need to make some wine bags this year. I'll have to find a tutorial for drawstrings. Thank you for the inspiration! said...

There are all romantically lovely, but that tree one sure grabbed my attention.

It is too late for me this year, but I would love to make some of these for next year. But I would get the basic bag pre-made and just hand stitch the pretties onto it. I would need BIG bags.


Those are adorable!
