Ditty Bag

ditty bag
A bag used to carry small items such as sewing implements.
I started getting the creative itch again.  I made a ditty bag with a drawstring and absolutely LOVE the way it turned out!  I'm going to go through my fabric and make up some more.  
Next up is a sugar cone.  I used brown sugar with some cinnamon and cloves mixed in.  Then I added just enough water to it so that it dripped off the spoon.  I cooked it on the stove for 5 min. or so then poured it into a mold and let it cool down and harden up.  I just used a plastic drinking glass for the mold but want to find something a little taller.  It was not the easiest thing to get out either.  I had to set the glass in boiling water so it would loosen up.  Next time I might try spraying it with nonstick spray first.
