Christmas In The Bag


Yeah, sorry, it is super early, but I’m still working on my shutters and since I wanted to get an early start listing my Christmas items in my Etsy, I thought I’d give a preview of them here.  The listings on Etsy are for three months and I’d rather have them listed early than hanging around for a period of time after Christmas.


I’ve got a bunch of small pillows.  I’m just giving a group shot here and you will be able to see them individually in my shop.  All these pillows measure about 6 x 9.


These red and white document fabric stockings have a creamy white quilted fabric on the back.


New in my shop this year are these burlap gift bags, which could be used to hold an actual gift or for decorative use.  This one has lots of decorative trims and tassels on it.



This one has some lace going all round the top opening and a cluster of three snowflake buttons hand-sewn in two opposing corners.




I’ve made one for myself for decorative use, too.  I won’t show that one until I’ve decorated my home for Christmas though.   Just stuff them with some shipping boxes that you would throw in your recycling.  I will most likely have mine near the fireplace and tree.



You can tie them off or leave them open and “overflowing”.  I’ve only made the two for my Etsy shop because I wasn’t sure how they would do. 


I also have the wine bottle bags I did last year (first picture above, too).  I’m planning on getting all these items listed in my Etsy shop by the weekend, if you are interested.  

Thanks for looking!

I just love your pretty creations, Kathy! I especially love the wine bags, what a fun idea! They would make great hostess gifts, filled with a nice bottle of wine:) The stockings are so pretty, I adore that Frenchy toile!!

I love the pillows, stockings and gift bags, Kathy! I have to check out the dimensions of the latter, they are too cute! You're smart to start now. I've totally skipped over fall crafts I have Pinned and thought that I'd try a few Christmas crafts since I always run out of time.

Thanks for your visit. My hand is doing much better now that I'm on meds. I, too, started to pack the summer clothes and pull out the winter. I had most of my things in an empty dresser and I thought, wow, there's not much here! Then I found a stack in my daughter's closet. Whew!!

Happy Fall!

Hi Kathy! You've been a busy little bee! I love all of your little things. I agree with the others - the large bags are great and what a nice way to wrap up something that won't fit into a box!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
