polka-dot gift bags. Combining the black and white dot print with a crimson red lining made for a fun afternoon's worth of work. The contrasting topstitching consumed a little more time, but the finished product is well worth it. Besides, the large red buttons practically cried for the additional detail. And who can resist showing off such fantastic buttons to their best advantage?
For photographic purposes, we filled the reusable gift bags with sets of books because we seem to have them at hand. However, the size is also perfectly suited to holding multiple dvds or cds, or larger items such as chocolates, coffee, or skeins of yarn.
