Dumplings by the Dozen

This is just a quick little post today….I have relocated my stamping supplies to the family room so no stamping going on in the last couple of days!!!  I wanted to share the gift that I made for my club hostesses; I lost the original picture, which showed ALL the different fabrics, so I will just have to show you two that happened to be at our last club meeting:


Sorry the photo isn’t better…I snapped it on my kitchen table!  They are called dumpling bags and I got the directions to make them HERE.  (I made the larger one).   I wish you could see the inside; they are lined with coordinating fabrics and they have a little ruffled ribbon tie on the zipper.  VERY cute and big enough to hold Snips & Snail to tote with you when stamping at an event!!!  And since some of the fabric on the Clearance Rack is $.99, you can make one for a song!   Here’s a closer view of one:


I made FOURTEEN of these!  I started back in the fall, and I don’t have my get-together until January,  so there was a lot less pressure than if I had to have them done by Christmas! 

Enjoy your day---be sure to stop back tomorrow for the Paper Players challenge, where I am the hostess!
