Shoe Bags Anyone?...

I like to give a gift from the heart. I like it to be special, useful and so the person I am giving it to knows she is cherished. At the moment I am giving shoe bags. Look, it is j-u-s-t a shoe bag but also so much more. It represents love, caring, friendship and beauty. My mottos: 'See beauty in the everyday'. 'Take joy from the simple things in life'. If my friends go on a trip and get joy from packing their shoes in these handmade shoe bags. Hooray!!!

I carefully select beautiful material for the birthday girl (let's face it all this would be wasted on a boy!) Something that represents them as a person: could be girly, modern, something with their favourite design or colour... I usually use a contrasting drawstring. These ones above are for a friend today whose birthday is soon and she is taking her children to Paris for Christmas. Paris!! 

What do you think? Feel free to use this idea for your friends...

Ciao for now 

just Martha


  1. Why I think this idea is fit for a Queen! They are very pretty and useful. I just need more holidays! :)

  2. What a wonderful idea! Our holidays are usually beach ones, so I dont know if my thongs do justice to a beautiful shoe bag! xx

  3. I definitely will be using this idea for my friends particularly those who travel frequently.

  4. Sorry I meant to ask - could you just give dimensions of fabric?


  5. This is great - a fantastic gift!

  6. Dear Mystica - I do a 45cm by 28 cm with the drawstring at the shorter end. I usually write a card explaining how the material was especially chosen and although humble shoe bags, they represent love, home and friendship....
