I love a pretty bag with so many uses!

Remember way back about a month ago when I was playing around with frills? These are the new creations I was working on............Draw string bags!
 I couldn't reveal way back then because I have been waiting on a shipment of self covering buttons so I could add that little extra touch to finish them off!
 They are all fully lined in a coordinating fabric, have three rows of frills......all of which were done by hand as I don't have a ruffler. The frills are all sewn in.......you won't see any raw edges on these little beauties!
 They are all just the sweetest, so pretty to look at.....yet so useful.
 For the first time around I have only made them in with 4 different coordinating colours......I just need to see how they go at Shop Handmade before I dive into full scale production!
 If you are interested I'm more than happy to make you one........I am selling them for $39.95 plus a bit of postage.
 If you like bright colours or soft and pretty that's not a problem.........I can do either.
 I love my draw string bag........I can keep my copy of Handmade Living in it for safe keeping, kind of like a library bag.
 Or I can put my favourite pair of shoes in it when I'm travelling.
When my bag isn't in use I just hang it on the door, it looks so pretty and always makes me smile every time I glance across and see it. Ahhhh!

There will be a shipment of these very useful yet pretty draw string bags arriving at Shop Handmade early next week so keep an eye out if you are down that way.

Thanks for stopping by.
