Finished $1 store Bags...

Good Morning!!  Just finished the little bags from the dollar store with doily embellishments and buttons!
The bag and the doily are from the $ store.  It is just the right size to hold cell phone, cosmetics, and a small wallet.  I got out my button tin and found these black and gold buttons to embellish the doily.  I just love the way it came out.
This is the backside with one black button for closure. 
And here is the lavender bag.  I removed the brighter green stitching on the handle ring and did a blanket stitch around the ring in a matching green embroidery thread.  I used all matching yellow buttons on this one. 
I used one lavender button for the closure on this one. I just used the opening on the doily for buttoning even though it is off center.  These will make great gifts!  They are completely washable, too!

Visit your dollar store and see what you can find to create something fun and bright.  Thanks for coming and do come back soon.  Hopefully, we will be finishing up our Lighthouse paintings soon!

My krafty heart to yours...
