More bags

I have so enjoyed decorating bags that I have embellished a few more.

I think this one is finished.  Stepping back to look at it I find it pleasing just as it is.

This bird is out of different material than the first one I did.  I’m trying to add some white to the tree branches to make it look like touches of snow, but it hasn’t quite worked out yet. We’ll see.
I thought this one was done, but looking at the picture I think it needs just a little more work. 
This one needs a little more something.  I haven’t quite decided what yet.
All of these bags are about 6 inches square not counting the handles (which I will iron to have them look nice). I’m planning on taking these to a local craft show later this month where my sister and I have a booth. It would be great if they sell but I can think of several people I could gift these to this Christmas.  And they have just been a lot of fun working on!
Seeing the trees in their fall colors this year has been enjoyable, too. The tree colors have been pretty spectacular around here.  The trees had water when they needed it and cool temperatures without severe weather which makes for pretty leaves.

This is looking toward the library from the courthouse in Newton, Kansas, October 30.  Quite the range of colors isn’t it?.  I had my camera with me that day and couldn’t resist taking a few pictures.  The drive to work this week has given me time to enjoy the gorgeous colors of the trees. 
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

  1. You definitely have a winning idea here! I think these should easily sell out! It's good that you have photos of them! You might be amused to see my post of April 8, 2012, where I decorated a similar bag (made from heavy felt – I think from Jo-Ann's) with tatting and some stick-on felt letters. It's one of my display pieces for Spring. I love your cute appliques, and it must be fun to come up with different designs and add some tatted embellishments that hopefully won't take too much time to do! Be prepared to take orders! Hope you'll continue to find the bags at a reasonable price.

    I can't believe it's been three years since we met here in Pittsburgh! I am always in awe of that fabulous pumpkin bookmark, which I coudn't hide away in a book! I have it on my bulletin board for special tatted items, and I take it to our tatting events in a special display to be admired! I also enjoyed your Fall photos.

  2. Cute bags! Your fall colors are beautiful while ours are pretty much done and gone now. It's funny how the color can be so different from one year to the next.

  3. Lovely idea, I like your bags. I hope they sell well.
    Our autumn colours have been blown off before they could turn, we have had some very bad weather over the last couple of weeks, what are still on the trees are turning so we might still get a bit of colour but it won't be the best year.
    Your pictures are lovely.

  4. Bags are always useful especially pretty ones like these, hope they sell, but as you say they will make good presents. Beautiful Autumn pictures, the colours of the trees are amazing.
