Since I do sewing, quilting and discuss postcards on this blog I thought I would combine the two. I started out with a piece of muslin and just started embroidering the Christmas stockings and twigs.
Then I measured the postcards to make sure they slipped in. I am not adding any drawstring like I usually do for most of my bags. I makes a nice gift bag since my family always expects a few postcards from me. Yes I can hear them now "I know why I am getting this gift, it did not sell on eBay." Well they do get other presents.
I bought some crystals which I ironed onto the fabric to give it a little bling. Not perfect sewing but fun projects for me.

First the Christmas card is from my sister, and on the left Is my favorite purchase. Baker's Twine. I have never worked with it before but have many uses for the string. I am going to use it for small drawstring bags, Gift Tags tied to presents. And all sorts of things.
I bought the jelly roll from a friend in sewing class. The Fat Quarters and Charm Squares came from Missouri Star Quilt Company.
A bag I bought at a Christmas Craft Fair for $2.00.
I got a huge bag of Hot-Fix Crystals. Pictured here is Meridian Blue which changes colors. They are Sworoski Crystals and usually a heat tool is needed. I attached them to Fabric with a hot iron and also used tacky glue for delicate work. Now to finish up with wrapping Christmas Presents using these items.
