Romancing the Bag

I've been having great fun creating new items to sell in my shop and at the craft fair. I ordered some muslin drawstring bags from Stampington & Co and went to work once they arrived. So, I opened all my craft drawers, vintage jewelry bins, stamp drawers, and started experimenting.  At this point, I've only designed two specifically for Christmas. The others can be used for gift or jewelry bags anytime.

I sewed little beads as ornaments on this stamped tree and added a little starfish charm on top.

I wanted to do something with numbers so I stamped 25 (Christmas Day) on a piece of muslin and then layered it on top of a burlap scrap. Buttons added for fun.
Here's a little Parisian-inspired bag that's already in my shop. This one sports some fringe that I had in my ribbon drawer and a vintage jewel.

Here's another that I created with an antique doily and a vintage pendant. I love how this one turned out.
