A Pretty Package

Today I just wanted to show you what I hope you will agree is the pretty way I package the goods I sell in my Etsy shop.

When I buy something handmade from Etsy I love it when the parcel arrives, as so many Etsy sellers take a lot of trouble to make their wrappings and presentation so special. It's like receiving a lovely present, and often the seller will enclose a little something extra, which is always a nice surprise, but never taken for granted.
As my items are mainly felted and therefore not breakable, I like to parcel them up in some vintage dressmaking pattern tissue and then tuck them into a little muslin or cheesecloth bag, on which I stamp 'handmade' with a little heart. The bag is tied up with a string bow with two little dingly-dangly handfelted hearts. Lots of my buyers have said how they love the packaging, which is great to hear - I like a happy customer!

Ooooh! I love the packaging as much as I love the items in the shop! What a thoughtful way to share your wonderful creations, Chrissie!

The packaging is worth buying in itself - beautiful.
