More Ditty bags

I had so much fun making the "ditty bag" from Beth Leintz's  Gathering Dust (Check the right side of her blog under recent posts-Feb. 2011.) that I decided to make a few more.  Here are two that I made for two blog friends.  I hope that each will be surprised when they receive their gift.

                                 I made another turquoise one like I made for my daughter.
  I made the bag out of muslin and used vintage trim, except for the button.  Unlike most crafters I
     don't have many vintage buttons that are attractive, so I chose this one from Jenny Bowlin.

I also gave this a short tea bath.

In honor of Valentine's Day
I made the next one red.

I also used some vintage trim on this one.
I also gave it a very short tea bath, beacause I didn't want
the reds to run.

Oh, they are so sweet -- especially the red one!

Hi there Nancy, OMG, was I EVER surprised to receive one of your gorgeous ditty bags!!!! Whoo Hoo. It is even more precious in person, and the Valentine candy inside was over the top! Thank you so very much for the "Secret Cupid" gift. I loved it. What a definite inspiration. Happy Valentine's Day to you, too. Take care, Nance
PS My computer has been in the shop off and on for a couple of weeks. I am working from my hubby's laptop and it has been somewhat of a challenge. I can't go to my full potential during the OWOH event. I hope you are flying around enjoying all the wondrous blogs that are participating. I plan on getting back to posting very soon. I can't scan, download photos, etc. at all. I will try to post your lovely bag as soon as I get my computer is back.

Hi Nancy, thank you for stopping by and entering my giveaway, I thought I'd stop in instead of emailing you.
Your little ditty bags are so cute. I like the way you embellish them, and personalize them.
