Having fun with Shoes and Bags

Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Great to have you call by, I love that you do that.
If you have a Blog and leave a comment I can get back to see what you do.  If not I thank you for your visit.  I hope you like what you see and call again soon.
I have had lots of fun making Shoes & Bags.  Made them over the past few day, they are now all finished. Hazel, my sister gave me an idea about how to "display and wrap them".  I have just to wrap them in Cellophane.  I thought I would show you them before I did that.
We used to import Oriental Carpets and still have a few left.  A friend of John`s who has bought quite a few phoned to ask if he would be interested in bringing them to her house in hope to sell some.  She is Hosting a Macmillan Night In, is having a few people together to sell some of their goods.  All that is required is to donate a percentage of any sales.  Sheila asked if I would bring some of my things as well.   We know how much Macmillan Nurses helped Hazel when she needed them, so no hesitation whether we sell anything or not.
Right here we go, there are a few Photographs:-
 Set One:- 
 Set Two:-
 Previous Display Idea
The last two shots are of the way I was going to display them.  
I pop a Nail Polish in each of the Shoes. Nail Polish Remover Pads, Large Emery Board and a Hand Cream in the Bag.
OR:- Mini Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Spray in the bag plus Mini Toothpaste and Folding Toothbrush in the Shoes. 
However Hazel had a set I made for her, she wrapped them altogether in an "Open Style Box"  ... Bingo that`s the way to do it!!!!  
Hazel http://hazelsbasketsofjoy.blogspot.co.uk/ is amazing at wrapping anything she`s brilliant.  Thank goodness for clever sisters.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your visit, I really appreciate it
Till next time

  44. Oh my Patricia your bgs and shoes are stunning, I'm sure I could never make anything so beautiful ! Did you use a template ? What a great way to display them too.

    Oriental carpets ? I love all things oriental and I'm sure you and john had a wonderful time running your business. What a great idea to take some to sell at the Macmillan appeal party, I have a pal who has garden parties and bring and buys to raise funds for Macmillan. We meet to craft every Wednesday evening and each of us put a donation in a collection tine she has too, a great way to boost the funds. Wish I had been at the party to see you amazing creations and your beautiful carpets !
