New Red Rooster COFFEE spice bag kits

I have enjoyed collecting coffee grinders, antique coffee bags, tins and such over the years, as you can tell by this photo.
I wanted to add some coffee spice bags to the inventory so I designed and stitched this coffee bag. It is 18ct fiddlers cloth that I have hand tinted. The faded red label is tinted too so all you have to do is stitch the word coffee on it and not the whole red back ground. The bag is 5"x9".
I will be adding other coffee spice bags as I get them designed. I need to send a few out to stitchers as I truly don't have time to stitch all of these. I have so many ideas for these adorable spice stay tuned. We will have to give one away too!
These will be available in my ebay store later today. Back to many little time......

Primitive Black Crow Spice Bag Kits, my newest designs and a give-away!

I thought I would start the new year by showing you some of my newest designs for primitive Black Crow Spice bags. These are my newest copyright protected designs. I am offering them as kits because the beautiful label is hand dyed by me. This is a kit that includes the hand dyed 18ct cloth for the label, black floss, the piece of burlap, interfacing, and the black braided cord for the draw string. I am including the piece of amber thread to stitch the label onto the bag. All you need is the stuffing of your choice.

The colors are a little richer and darker than this photo. They truly look antique and go so well with primitive furnishings. Stitch a whole shelf of them or a few to go in a basket on a table for a display. This is an excellent quality burlap I have selected for these spice bags. Shown is Parsley, Sage, Allspice and Cinnamon (bags are 4-1/2" x 8") but I have a dozen others I need to stitch. These will be for sale in my ebay store tomorrow or direct through me. Kits are $14.99 each. These are a good size decoration to add to your primitive collection. They really stand out.
NOW......lets give a few away!!!!! The kit of your choice. Be a a comment here. The drawing will be January 15th. Lets give 4 kits away. Post on your blog and get another entry. Send a friend and get another entry. I love to start the new year giving things away. Thank you for being a follower.
I hope all of you have a very Happy New Year!
