Angela - Herbs In A Bag
It's Angela here and hope you're doing great!
Christmas is coming and all my efforts are focused on making gifts for my loved ones. Today, I'm going to show you all a gift I created for my sweet friend Anna. She loves to cook and cannot live without her herbs!
I sewed a linen bag using some leftover fabric from another project, or you can easily find a ready-made bag like this one. I painted it with fabric paint by Pentart, mixing colors and using different shades of blue, I added a touch of sparkling gold to give a festive look and a beautiful flower to enrich the composition.
The new Kiss The Cook collection was perfect for my project, so I fussy cut the banner "Happiness is Homemade" from the foil vellum and I glued it with hot glue to the bag.
To embellish the packaging, I moved a step further and I added a wood stick with the note "Farm Fresh" and some leaves die cut from the same paper collection.
From here, you can fill the bag with fresh herbs as you like it-rosemary, cilantro, basilAs a "craftaholic", I definitely adore making presents by myself, and I think Anna will be happy to receive it.
Oh, I almost forgot to show you the usefulness of it! Using the handle of the bag, it can be easily hanged up in the kitchen to have the herbs always ready to use.
I hope you like this idea and have as much fun creating your own bag as I did.
Happy Crafty Christmas to everyone!
