|From my collection of vintage Christmas cards|
I will tell more later about our ladies' Christmas fellowship and Yankee swap, because there is much more to tell than just this, but can only take a few minutes today. I thought I'd just share this interesting tidbit.
My friend Mrs. Doug, who is not only my blog friend but a real-life friend, had done a post this week called "Christmas craftiness" in which she showed pictures of some projects she has been making. I borrowed her photos of one project because I am having some camera issues right now. I wasn't really sure if she was making this bag for the Yankee swap, but guessed that she might be.
|The photos don't do this beautiful bag justice. Made from a thrift-store felted sweater in the softest, palest aqua, it is just exquisite. You can just catch a glimpse of the lining and the handmade macrame handles.|
|Some of the details. The embroidery is so beautifully done.|
|One of my daughters used this fabric on a Christmas sweatshirt in high school, I think. The snow globe fabric has been in my stash for years.|
