              Carly those are great! I too considered doing my own for about a second, then immediately vetoed the idea! It looks likes you could be another BDWer to start a side business! They are great!

                  Oh boy, you guys are all so wonderful. I couldn't quote you all for this response, so as a big response, THANK YOU ALL! The comments really make me feel better. I mean I like the bags and all, some have some sloppy parts, but I think it's the fact that I made them that makes them ok. You know, part of the charm of a handmade item.

                  I am actually glad I did complete the bags. A week or so ago, I was running into all kinds of sewing machine problems and was feeling stressed out and I wanted to quit and go buy dollar store bags or something. But Jill wouldn't let me, so I have to thank her for pushing me.
                  too cute! I love them!
                  I really want OOT for my guests...can't seem to find the perfect ones though...my MIL to be has offered to make some for me, so i am interested in the "how to" - what type of fabric did u use for the hibiscus bag?
                  Rach - that's a great idea. I hadn't thought of adding a tag. Hmmmm, now what should it say? Like just a hang tag? Oooh, what about a clear mailing label that I could stick on the interior and they can them remove? Or is that corny?

                  Now send one to me! LOL
                  Thanks, Michelle. I never have sewn before except at Christmas I made some heavy baby dolls for my neice and nephew and Matt's niece. So I guess I have sewn before, once. But still proud of myself!
