It's a Gift

It's the last week of Christmas at OOTH challenge is to make a gift, the ladies have made some inspiring pressies.
Well the lavender in my garden is a poor excuse for a bush but a friend kindly gave me some of hers, so I set to making a few lavender bags.
I've used one of the other half's cream shirts destined for the rag bag and stamped with versafine ink and coloured with promarkers very quickly and carefully (if you linger to long on the fabric it just sucks out the ink and bleeds)



Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by :)

These are gorgeous pressies Von and great idea to stamp and colour on the material. I picked all of our lavendar so have some to use-may have to steal this fab idea.

Thanks for joining in at the Hatters.

Looooovely!!! Fantastic pressies Von. Country style crafting is my favourite. These look like something you would buy from one of those really expensive house beautiful shops. You know the ones I mean. Thank you so much for sharing with the Hatters.
