Bag It!

Hello friends

Oh I do like a bag!  
I've just taken delivery in the shop of these useful natural hessian/jute gift bags - 
they measure 220mm x 190mm x 120mm
(that's roughly 8 inches x 7 inches and 4 inches in depth!)

They are perfect for gifts and for decorating!

  I speedily and simply adorned this one with felt Foliage and a fabric Grand Peony Creations.
Remember by adding the Junior Metal Shim you can cut through fabrics easily.
How about red Layered Poinsettias at Christmas....??
The bags can be found on the website here.

I mentioned yesterday that we celebrated my mum's birthday,
I took some photos of the Grandchildren, Mitchell, Rachel, James and Elliott -
very proud of all four of these.
Delighted that Elliott is growing taller thanks to his daily injections.
You can certainly see the difference, just a couple of years ago...

Today I'm working on Friday Die Day before I head off for my City job for 
a couple of days - I keep saying it..but where are the weeks going?

Thanks for the ironing tips - I've decided ironing is a little risky right now 
with the kittens into everything...any excuse! 

Take care friends.

Hi Christine, love the happy family photo, it's good to see Elliott looking so well. The hessian bags look good and are great for giving presents in. I would rather use a bag than wrap a present now, it seems such a waste of lovely wrapping paper.

Thankyou for sharing your lovely pictures. Elliott is looking great what a handsome young man and big bro Mitchell looks good as well your Mum must be so proud of her Grandchildren.

The bags look fab. I love how you have decorated one with the lovely flower great idea for gifts and a very neat and useful bag for later. How about a Charity kit using one of these gorgeous bags???

Hi Christine. I had to do a double-take, Elliott looks so well, watch out Mitchell, he will be overtaking you soon! A lovely picture of the cousins together.
The bags are a great idea for decorating with felt and fabric die cuts. Take care all,

Morning Christine, A fabulous piccie, definitely one for the album, and Elliott is definitely growing taller, he is going to be taller than Mitchell soon. So good to see the cousins together at such a fantastic occasion.
I'm loving your hessian bag, and thank you, thank you, for adding the measurements in inches for the likes of me who still work in inches haha. Your embellies look fabulous.
Have a good day in the city job.
I have just hung out some washing and now the sun has gone in, typical haha !!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine
What a fab photo, I'm sure your Mum was delighted with it! It's great to see Elliot looking so well, I imagine he's been needing a new wardrobe too!👍
The hessian bag looks really lovely decorated, amazing how you have changed it from being so plain.
Have a lovely day.

Hi Christine
I was looking at these Hessian bags a few days ago and ordered one with a Merecat sewn on to it , { a bit pricey though } I never thought to have decorated it myself , doh.

Lovely pics hope you have copies for your Album ?

Morning Christine

I love the idea of decorating the hessian bags.....I need the metal shim and also a grand calibur co amine unfortunately died

I thought that Elliott was growing taller when I saw the photo on Facebook


Maggie said...

Hello Christine. Wow those boys look great, along with their cousins, and Elliott has shot up. Isn't it lovely when families come together? What a useful size for the bags. I have the ebosser now as well as the GC and I must admit it cuts through fabric really really well. xxMargaretxx

marg said...

Hello Christine
So pleased that Elliott has improved you must be so happy!
Lovely picture of the Grandies one for the album!
Love the little bag too!
Have a lovely day
Take care

Supernan Sue said...

A lovely photo, lovely looking group of youngsters.
I am so pleased to see how Elliott is shooting up, he will soon overtake Mitchell at this rate. Keep going with the injections Elliott, I know they are not pleasant but well worth it, you are looking terrific.
Also love the bag. Take care

Sandra said...

Good morning Christine,
Wow Elliott has grown, I noticed immediately before I read your comment, I know it has been an enormous struggle, but so worth it to see the difference it has made in all aspects of his life, I had a lump in my throat when I saw his smiling face in equal height to the others! I bet your mum loves having them all round her, nothing beats family days!
Love the hessian bags, simply adding a single flower transforms the bag to a sunny day accessory!
That flower would be great pinned to a jacket, a pair of shoes or even a hair accessory!
Hope the London Days fly by and you are back home ready for the weekend!
Crafty hugs

Wow Christine, your little lad is growing into a big lad! Lovely to see all of mum's grands. I hope she enjoyed her day.

Love the Jute bag Christine, I have decorated Felt bags in a similar way, they have been very popular at the local craft fairs I go to.
What a very special photo you have shared with us today. You must all be very proud. So pleased the treatment is working for Elliott....look out Bro, I'm catching you up!!!
Love, Carolyn

Mrs B said...

Hi Christine. I love the little hessian bag, your flower is so pretty on it, and the bag is a great size : ) Like Sandra I noticed how much Elliott had grown before reading your comments, real proof that the injections are working. Love the pic, it's always good to get all of the children together, your Mum enjoyed every minute I trust : ) Take care.

Hello Christine
I love a bag too and my head is buzzing with ideas for these. Just waiting for pay day so I can get some.
The photo of your extended family is lovely - Elliot looks so well and nearly catching up with Mitchell.
I hope you had a lovely day

Jackie Elliott said...

what a lovely photo, glad to see that Elliott is catching up in the height department and looking so well.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Christine,
I love your bag - and the photo is lovely ............
So good to hear that Elliott is doing great, he has certainly deserved it.
As for the ironing - I don't need the "kittens" excuse , I just use the "save energy" one. (hehehe)
Hugs, Rose
