Clearly Simple Treat Bags from Toile | Damask Love



And so begins the parade of Valentine’s Day projects. If you’ve taken a peek through the Toile Valentine’s Day issue, you know how much I love crafting for this holiday and even with all the projects in the magazine, I still have a ton of ideas to share with you. So stay tuned. Before I roll out the full monty of loves and hugs, I wanna share a second look at one of the projects in Toile. I’ve received some questions about the Clearly Simple Treat Bag on page 33 so here’s a step by step tutorial on putting it together.
