Craft Project: Treasure Bags

Good TUESDAY afternoon, Ladies! 💗

I pray that your week is off to a great start and that you're getting some stuff that you had hoped to.  

Treasure Bags

I got the treasure bags done that I've been working on since the end of JanuaryMy goal was to use up the yarn leftover from making my 2019 temperature afghan in hopes of making enough bags to, at least, cover the grandchildren for Christmas.

Treasure Bags

I didn't quite use up all the yarn. I had an abundance of pumpkin orange, so will have to find a fall craft project to make with that (am thinking autumn leaf garlands maybe), but I did manage to make enough bags to cover the grands, plus had an extra bag left over. I will probably keep that one for myself and keep my crochet hooks, scissors, and stuff in it and keep it with my yarn bag.

I have a couple of Walmart sacks full of yarn that my youngest daughter gave me around Thanksgiving-time, year before last, and I am turning that into bags, too.

Treasure Bags
For Christmas I will stuff each bag full of goodies (tiny treasures, small age-appropriate gifts, personal care items, cash or gift cards, candy, etc.) and give them as gifts to the grandchildren. I hope they enjoy them. They'll be kind of like a stocking, but not. 

 Treasure Bag Idea

The extra bags can be stuffed with goodies and given away or I might take orders and sell some.

That's one thing that I've worked on and accomplished this week. 

How about you? What are you working on this week?

Until next time...

  1. Love the idea of a treasure bag, and it's a bonus to use up scrap yarn. I haven't worked on much lately. I hope to work on something today, since it will be raining.

    1. I just hope the grandchildren like the treasure bags as much as I do, Kristina. Of course, I'm sure that once they're stuffed full of goodies they'll be all the more enticing. Hope you get to work on something crafty today. We've had a lot of rain here, too. Blessings! :)
