Soul Food #42~

Little Muslin Bags~

Are fun to adorn as gift bags~
You can stamp them..embellish them..or use iron-on transfers or printable sheets~

The from many different sources,The Graphics Fairy..Shabby Chic Papirskatter~..etc etc..Gleaned from many sites.. Just Something I Made.. and another site/blog ..I cannot find..Sherri. I do not want to mention just one because the images come from many places..

I add to them in Photoshop.. so not one is the same really~

They are combinations.

Like tags..but muslin bags~

So much fun to personalize~Antique w/ tea stains.. add personal items..intials..embroidery etc..

  6. Lovely bags! I must get a better "handle" on Photoshop...I am in a basic mode! Great ideas, lovely result...

  7. Oh, so lovely, Monique. Your beautiful little bags are a gift in themselves. You are so clever, sweet lady.

  8. Bonjour Monique, j'aime cette idée car elle permet de garder le sac pour le réutiliser, et c'est tellement beau qu'on veut le garder pour toujours.
    Je n'ai jamais fait de transfert sur du tissus, je ne sais pas si c'est simple.

    Passe une belle journée.

  9. C'est du papier spécial Josée.. l'imprimante ..imprime sur ce paper qui a une surface auto-collante.. On repasse et le transfert adhère.

    Yes, I know that's Italian and Spanish. I just didn't know how to say it in French.
    In any case, one language wouldn't have been enough to cover how I feel about your creative flair.

  21. Monique, these are totally charming! I love this idea.
