Burlap + Gold

Burlap with gold... LOVE this burlap with gold accent circles that I got at JoAnn's.  I saw it right as I went in the door and made a beeline for it.  (With Dennis trailing behind, of course!  He's so sweet to go wherever I want to.)

Love it even more with one of Nicecrane Designs wonderful vintage images.  Isn't she pretty?

She's just one of the beauties in the Women Paintings III set:

See?  They're all pretty!  

This bag was super easy to make. 

Decide on size of bag.
Add 1/2 inch to width and double the length and add 2 inches.
(Example:  this bag is 5" x 6 1/2", so I cut a rectangle of burlap 5 1/2" x 15 inches.)
Fold in half with right sides together.  Sew a 1/4" seam on
each side.
Turn right side out. 
Turn top to inside 1" and glue.  (You could sew, but Aileene's glue worked great!)
Sew ribbon handles in at seam.

So fun to give with a thoughtful gift inside and don't forget to visit Nicecrane Designs to pick out a pretty image to make it extra special!  

Now for a special treat for you!  I'll send  enough of the gold circle accent burlap to make two bags this size to one lucky person.  Just leave me a comment that you would like to win.  Using random selection, I'll announce the winner on Sunday (comments will close at 6:00 pm cst).  

 Thank you so much for stopping by...
