I have a lot of lace to use, not too much fabric but lots of the frothy stuff.
A great deal of it came from a man next door.
A friend who dabbles in antiques
When he finds old lace he kindly gives it to me, someone who can use it he says.
He does have fine taste and really comes across some vintage bits
Made these for my shop, gone too soon

I had to mail a few things and completely ran out of supplies
So I made envelopes for packages, from brown paper and string
Love the earthy look of simple old stand-byes
Here are some pictures of my sewn version.
Take a big piece of brown paper and fold in a half inch on all sides
Fold in half to make the bag or envelope size you want
You need some Washi tape and another piece of brown paper for the
address label, and some string
Sew the Washi tape to top of the label or glue it in place.
Place a long piece of string under the label before sewing onto the front of the project
String should wrap around envelope and tie at bottom of label after items are put inside.
Sew two sides of the envelope, fold can be at a side or bottom.
Leave other side open for adding items
Tie the string around the envelope and sew the whole thing closed to secure items inside.
I hope you find this fun and useful
Of course it can be decorated and modified to your taste
when people sign up for give -aways and they do not claim or even remember they did it
it is bad manners, and since it has happened again to my offer
I will not give away my handmade creations in future
I am doing some swaps now on YouTube
My sale for the New Year is going on in my shop

Love the tree in a bucket from Nordstroms, half price too.
I have the mid size, larger not available
Just fits nicely in my attic apartment here in Honolulu
I am being good too, not peeking at wrapped gifts.
A big unwrapped gift is on floor in an old brown bag.
