Christmas Madness-

The Wisconsin weather is perfect Indian Summer and I am up to my neck in Christmas fabrics! What a problem to have.... It seems like nothing charms me more than a vintage Santa. Check out our website for some great Christmas patterns that are simple enough to still get stitched by the time you need to put them under a tree.

The gift bag pictured here is a quickly stitched piece that is based on a 1920's Christmas card that Jeanne found at an antique store. We love dating old cards and pictures and discovering the story of their first life. But more than that, hard to believe, we love to give this type of charming design a new life through one of our patterns. This bag is so simple to make. When a gift is placed inside and you use raffia or twine to tie it shut, it makes a great presentation under the tree.

Try it out-we guarantee you'll fall in love with this Christmas gift bag.
