Closer Peek at my Gift Bags from Book Signings!



I snapped these pics on the night of my first book signing here in SF! Unfortunately, I no longer use the popcorn boxes because they took up a lot of space to transport! I also failed to take a picture of the various candy rings and brooches I included in the gift bags as well!

Pictured are my mini book (which I do plan to put up for sale on Etsy), a thank-you card (that looks a lot like the thank-you stickers I use when I ship goodies to people…I considered writing messages inside of them, but then decided to leave them blank so you could re-use them as your own thank-youcards!), a sticker (these were supposed to be temp tattoos, but my temp tattoos did not arrive in time…I also plan to turn this design into a tshirt), a button (it’s a cupcake made of yarn … this is a small part of a drawing I made of a yarn banana split and I’m not sure yet what to do with that art), and a juicy ball of handspun yarn! I had a lot of fun shopping for yummy handspun for my gift bags, but unfortunately, I have run out and have to stop including them in the bags because it gets really expensive! πŸ˜›

Hope you liked the peek into my gift bags! I will keep trying to make them for my Seattle and Portland signings but since I’m flying and need to stuff them in my suitcase, don’t be mad if I run out! πŸ˜›

Locals have one more chance to pick up a gift bag this Sunday at my signing and crochet class/hang-out at ImagiKnit from 4:30-5:30pm. I’ll be doing a cupcake demo and helping you with any questions with your projects or any basic crochet questions! Then at 5:30pm I’ll be signing books. If you buy a book on Sunday at ImagiKnit, you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a Yummy You scarf :). Should be fun. Please come out! I’ve never given a class or a workshop before! Eep!

    Those giftie bags are cool, “Hooks Ahoy” would definitely make a great tattoo, lol.

    Good luck with the class/signing. I’m sure you’ll have a great (big) crowd!

    I ‘found you’ through Elsie’s blog and just wanted to let you know I love all your crochet work. Especially your Sanrio scarf- amazing! I wish I knew how to whip up such cuteness. =) I think I need a pair of chunky black Mary Jane’s too. Adorable. Best to you in everything!

    Twinkie, you are a gal after my own heart! When I have done classes, demos, ect, I always make little gift bags for my students to have. There is nothing like a present to make people happy and remember you!!!!! Very good marketing!!!

    Christmas was good to us and I got your book (twice even!!!) so people must love me and know how much I wanted that! πŸ˜€ Great work- I hope someday you might consider another book *wink wink*. I had a question about the mini-book up above…did I miss that on Etsy or is it out yet? (Do you have one available?) πŸ˜€ Hope you have a great New Year to come!
