Wrapping gift

As usual, you made my week great by visiting and leaving a comment. Thank you all!

Again, the week went by very quickly.
We are under a wave of cold, almost all France is under snow, and we have rain and low temperature. The perfect weather to stay in my sewing room.

I recently revamped this sewing room. Not only is it looking nicer and bigger, but I'm also more stash-conscious.

With Xmas in a few weeks, I'm facing a recurrent problem: I'm not good at wrapping gifts, sigh...
As I said above, I've had a good look at my stash, and at those lovely bits just waiting the opportunity to step into the light. There are even orphan blocks waiting for their day. So I decided to try another method: bags.
I made them very simple, raw edges, quick seams, and here they are:
Now is the time for a nice cup of hot cocoa!
I wish you a very good week! Take care!

Wow, who wouldn't want a gift presented this way. The bags are beautiful. Each one unique. Have a great week.

Sweet bags. My darling daughter is in Paris right now. Hope she is not too cold.

Those are beautiful, Veronique! I'm sure the recipients will feel like they are getting two gifts in one.... Stay warm!!

Aren't the bags just gorgeous! They are so beautiful! I can imagine the face of the lucky ones who get any one of the bags, their face must be full of happiness and radiant when they receive it! You're so artistic!!!

I like wrapping gifts -- but lately, the gifts I've chosen don't fit neatly in boxes. Your bag idea is brilliant!

Good for you! The red and yellow patchwork ones are my favorite...what a great use of those "orphan squares".

They would make great presents--not must wrappings.

Such sweet little bags, Vero. You're such a talented seamstress.
Sorry to hear you have snow and cold. Our turn will come...looks like next week will be snowy.
At the moment we have light rain. Heavy rain expected tomorrow...2 inches!
Our youngest daughter is getting married on Saturday. Much excitement here :)
Stay warm and snug!
