Xmas Gifties

After a bit of a break I've booked today for sewing. I'm starting on my Xmas gifties - today I'm making felt wine bags after seeing one at a local craft sale. I found something similar on Eco-Handbags.ca that I modified. I'll make a couple today then change the dimensions to make goodie bags. My Mom and I usually make goodies for gifts - shortbread, truffles, etc. This way I can make re-usable bags that are somewhat funky... And just as cheap as a store-bought bag.

Recent Thrift Store Finds

I picked this silverware box up yesterday at the Salvation Army for $12. It's quite the find with the Art Deco handles. Paul and I can hopefully refinish it soon. I'm not sure what we'll use it for but it'll be quite the swanky box once it's been redone. Exciting!

The box has 2 compartments - I'd love to remove the cardboard/fabric inlay and just have the wood. I can always put down some sort of fabric. We'll see what happens! :-)


  1. I just took some spray paint to a similar wood box. I still have to decoupage the fabric to the out side top. Thanks for this post, it will light my fire to get it done.

  2. Thanks for your comment! I love your furniture projects. :-)

    I just picked up this vintage magazine rack that reminded me of your magazine rack that's blue with the Amy Butler fabric.

    Happy crafting!
