Gift Bags

 Made these lovely gift bags for future secret pressie.
I was only going to make ONE, but because l was not concentrating on my cutting l have ended up with five small gift bags. All lined of course.
But that is all fine as l got to use up more scraps, always a plus.

Love this little Animal one great for the new baby gift to go off in.
 This flower bag is for the more mature Ladies gifts...soap perfumes etc. Using up scraps is great. Cut this one to 10" X 8"
 When l was making this bag l had sewn the three side together cut the corners off and thought what have l done.  It ended up being a short stubby one. but instead of throwing it on to the scrap pile l used more scraps and here it is.
This was the original  fabric l wanted to make my bag out of.  Was just enough to make two bags each a little different.  Looks like Licorice Allsort. Will be great for a bag full of sweets.
Because of a lack of concentration l have reaped the rewards of five new gift bags.

Post Arrives On Time.

 Watching out for the post to arrive for the last 4 weeks, becoming ever so anxious with every passing week.   What a great Anniversary gift, arriving right on time too. Hubby could not have planned it any better. lol.
Do not like buying over the net prefer to walking into a store pat the fabric and taking it on home with me.
But l have started to make more and more purchases over the net. Always nervous until the parcel arrives.
Love these fabrics by Bonnie & Camille will make great girly quilts for my 21st quilts due out 2014.
Off for a little pay now so very Scrumptious.
