New Gift Bags and a Great Fall Give away...hurry and enter now!

I was going to post this last week but got behind due to another health problem. I would say I'm up and running but actually I am on crutches for a while. No fun at all.....but I know how we can have some fun! Lets have a give-away!

I have been working on some Christmas gifts. I took some premium muslin, dyed it Caramel favorite....I also dyed the cord the same color for the draw string. It draws from both sides as I like that look better. After I dyed the fabric I stamped designs all over it. The top of the bag is folded in and has a nice finished look (and printed design) when you peek inside.  I did one bag for fall for this give-away. I also did one for a Treasured Friend which includes that pattern. I also did a Halloween one....I will start that give-away next week. One at a time! Oh yes....and I also did Christmas. These are so old fashioned looking.....soft aged colors. If you know me real well...I am eccentric and love everything antique. You have to look real hard in my house to find the new things.

This gift collection of treasure includes the gift bag (which is 7 x 10-1/2"),6 (20yd) skeins of my floss, caramel cream 2" eyelet, 2 colors of ric rac, 3 colors of cluny ric rac in pale champagne, antique caramel light and medium, caramel cotton tape, a spool of 3 yds. of the caramel cream cord I used for this gift bag, 20 wood buttons in light oak and dark brown, my hand dyed toffee colored buttons,  heart shaped wood buttons, heart shaped mother of pearl buttons, mother of pearl floss rings (perfect for needle books) 3 yards cluny cream trim, 2 yards sisal and cotton ric rac trim, stork scissors charm in silver, 2 brass key charms and two brass scissors charms!
A $70 value if you purchase the items separately.
So....You MUST be a follower and post a comment here to enter. Post on your blog and get another entry. For each friend you send you get 3 more entries. Let the comments begin!

Drawing to be September 21st so hurry and enter.

Here is a peek at the Treasured Friend Gift Bag with the Treasured Friend Pattern. Same goodies but the additional pattern. We may have another give-away for this one at a later date.

I will be listing this set in my eBay store and other smaller gift bags over the next few weeks. They make such nice gifts.
