I have been wanting to show you all a picture of a door prize I made for our last Smocking Guild (SAGA) meeting. However, our computer decided to blow out its mother board a week or so ago, so I've not had access to the pictures I took before the meeting.
We have never given out door prizes at our meetings before....but I thought it would be fun. So I whipped up this little bag late one night using the same fabric as the dress I was going to be demonstrating. Then I put a little bit of crochet along the top edges, added a drawstring, and the bag was finished. I went to my favorite heirloom shop to find a few inexpensive items to tuck inside. I had wanted to pick up some smocking needles and floss....however, the shop was out of smocking needles....so I settled for embroidery needles and my favorite colors of floss for Wee Care gowns. I think the door prize when over pretty well. I'm hoping I can come up with something each month that somehow correlates to the night's program.
