Handmade Valentine Gifts
So what are you getting for your Valentines this year?? Chocolates? Jewelry? Stuffed animal? What do you plan to wrap them in? A paper bag? clear plastic? or wrapping paper that will just get thrown away eventually?? How about a handmade "cloth" Valentine's gift bag? I asked the question on my FB page which do you prefer, paper or cloth and I had about 8 responses, and they all said cloth! One lady said it's like getting 2 gifts in one! With a cloth bag, you can re-use it for something else later. Someone else said it was " greener" because you aren't using plastic or paper that will just end up in a landfill.
I have several "handmade" gift bags ( all sizes) pictured above with my display for the Valentine's Day vendor event at Martinsburg Mall February 7-9. Some of the bags are made from Valentine T-towels ( on far right and far left.) Some of them are smaller and would be great to put candy in for kids. I have polka dotted, Valentine fabric, & "Owl Be Yours" fabric bags. In the middle is the toddler apron- "Owl Be Yours". The "Owl Be Yours" aprons- (Mother & toddler) have been listed as favorites and put in the " treasury list" on Etsy. Yesterday, I had 23 favorites! Very exciting. The black, pink, red & white heart shape pillow was also placed in a Treasury. Also listed in my Etsy store are 2 girls Valentine handbags. The Valentine items above are also listed. Soon I will also have a " cupcake Valentine apron- matching Mom/Toddler. Right now,I am have a 10% off Sale on $10 sales -but ends on January 31! Check out the link below.
I am also excited to announce my new line of Infinity scarves. Stay tuned for more to be added to my Etsy Store store soon!
