Christmas Crafting

Mick was in Vancouver, BC from Saturday until yesterday so I spent some of the time by myself crafting. When he walked into the house I thought since he returned he didn't know Obama had won. He did know & came home to me after all. He didn't know that Syracuse had won on Saturday so that was a nice surprise.
I've had this project in my mind for a long time now. We usually give wine away during the holiday season and I wanted to make the gift somewhat more personal. The holly berries & leaves are made with wool felt. Wool felt is SO MUCH nicer the the regular cheap-o felt. This is the first time I've ever used it and I'm not going back.
I bought the burlap to make the bags and then I got the idea to make a bag out of felt. I think now I'm going to buy more felt for other bags. This project is very easy and and it doesn't take very long to make a bag. I have also come up with an idea to decorate bags that would not involve holly berries, for bags that could be used during other times of the year.
