So how do you like it? I think it's adorable!! And it will hold at least a dozen cookies, if not more. I'm going to make some for Christmas too. When I do those I'll post for all to see. What a productive day for me. I have another cut out. I might go whip it together now.
**Addition: I found the book, it's called Hugs and Holly and you can find it at the Wooden Bear. Here's the link to their site: http://www.thewoodenbear.com/index.htm.
I've made 2 bags like this one, and now I'm finishing up to in a more Fall motif. Everyone that has seen them loves them. And I agree, they are pure AWESOMENESS!!!!! I plan on making them for all the holidays and seasons. Perfect little baskets to have on hand when you need a little something to brighten someones day. Make 'em up ahead of time and when you need them, fill it with cookies, candy, sewing notions, a gift, whatever....and ta dah - instant awesome gift!!
