Something new!

I've had something on my mind for awhile that I've wanted make and
finally took the time to make a prototype.

This is a small, hanging flower bag that is completely
lined with a heavy plastic bag so it can hold water inside!!
I've sewn the bag into the top only so it can hold water
to keep your cuttings fresh ~
What do you think???

My cuttings look a little summer-ish but these were the
only two hydrangea blooms on my tiny bush and I trimmed
a few greenery stems from shrubs in our flower bed.

I hope to make a few that are burlap or canvas soon ~
I think they would be beautiful hanging on doorknobs
or cabinet knobs with evergreens and berries for the holidays!!!
Plus, with the cuttings being water,
they will stay fresh and pretty so much longer!

It measures about 5" wide x 7 1/2" tall with about a 7" drop
from the top of the handle to the top of the bag.

I've listed this one in my Etsy shop....
If they do well, I'll of course have to make more!!

Well, here I'd gone and thought I'd made something new
but I guess there's just nothing new under the sun!!

Oh well...I'll still make several my own version of these little things :)

And you know if I find a good magazine, I just have to share, right???
The new BH&G Christmas Ideas is a KEEPER!
I've taken a few photos to give you an idea too :)

Beautiful, right???

I hope to have a few more flower bags made soon and
of course listed in my Etsy shop too!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday sweet friends ~
hugs and love,

Hi Dawn!

Well, you had better start making more because I just bought that one!

It's awesome - I am going to use it when I have an overnight guest & hang it on the bedroom door to welcome them.

Keep up the lovely work - always so fun to see what next you create!

My Dearest Dawn,
I think you flower bag is gorgeous and a fantastic idea. I agree with Michele you will be sure to be getting plenty of orders for these little darlings.
Hope all is well with you.
Warmest best wishes,

So Michele bought it!! I went to get it! And Flora Dora is on vacation and I don't want to buy from her :)

I want one, Dawn. Let me know when it's ready and I'll PayPal you the money! So excited to have another piece of your art. I heart you and your talent.
Have an awesome and wonderfully blessed week, Nancy

Oh I had to come looking for you...the day didn't seem right without seeing what you're up to. Great minds think alike! You have made me buy magazines before. You may have again.

What a great idea Dawn. You never cease to amaze me. I love Christmas magazines. Like Vee, I might have to get this one. ~ Abby

How very lovely and clever, dear Dawn! And your idea is still original, because your bag is designed for cuttings and is therefore smaller--plus (even more important) it holds water!!!
