If you create these bags with rich silks and velvet, in Holiday colors
Though simple, they look like small gems.
I like to use them for gift bags and put necklaces or fragrance inside.
hanging on the tree they are ornaments with a usefullness
Easy to make ..........you need
fabric to measure 13 x 7 inches
Piece together with 2 colors as pictured, red and bronze silk are what I used.
Sew together in a strip and decorate one panel with a fancy trim
cut 2 circles of fabric for the bottom, 4 inches in diameter
Sew sides and a hem at top, sew around the circles too
sew the circle to the bottom, does not have to be perfect
Turn to right side and cut 5 pieces of velvet ribbon, 2.5 inches each
Fold in half and slip over the top hem, space evenly, fold is even with top of bag,
half on inside and half out
Stitch all around over velvet ribbon about a centimeter from top for casing
Take a yard of narrow cord and thread through the ribbon casing,
bottom of ribbon should hang free for decoration
Tie 2 rusty bells onto the ends of the cord, and pull up , tie in a bow.
that's all, they are easy and so pretty
try them and let me have comments
