Brown Bag Gift Pouch

Kathie McGuire here today, and I'm sharing a little brown bag project that I made recently. I used a lunch-size bag I purchased at the grocery store and folded it up to make a pocket. Then, I sewed the sides to keep it shut. I used the Aged Parchment techique from the 6/08 newsletter on the white doily. It was rather fragile, so I carefully brushed on the liquid color rather than soaking the doily directly in the liquid. All of the other items used were odds-n-ends from my stash. The brown paper package tied up with string (like the song--LOL) is a chocolate bar from Trader Joe's grocery store. It measures 4" X 4" so it fit perfectly inside the pouch. The little pick is a dollar store find--I think they're olive picks, but they worked perfectly for my "sign." I hope you've enjoyed the project and thanks for stopping by. Kind wishes, Kathie
