Every year I buy cheap santa sacks to fill with those goodies that don't fit into a stocking and every year I end up getting cross and throwing them away by Boxing Day because they have stretched and ripped. Which is why I asked to review the Personalised Christmas Sack in Red Gingham.
This sack is huge (and I got the middle sized one at 65x50cm (25"x19"). It's so robust, really thick and strong and made from 100% cotton. Even better, when you have kids around, it's machine washable. Plus they are all made in their own UK workshop.
One of the drawbacks I find with drawstring bags is the ends frey and we end up burring them with a lighter (a great trick if you didn't know it already) to melt the threads back together. Izabela Peters has obviously come across this problem many times as well as they sew tags around the ends of theirs to stop the problem.
There are many bags available, these particular ones come in either spots or gingham checks and can be personalised with either a star or heart applique in the same fabric. Alongside "Merry Christmas" you can personlise them with the children's name (or names in this case) which are stitched onto a white linen panel above the motif.
If you wished to use these bags instead of stockings they come with a loop firmly attached for hanging onto the fireplace.
Remember I mentioned the other bags they do... well here's just a few....
All the white/ linen can be transposed onto the other as can the spots/ gingham with heart/ star so you truly can personalise each child's sack.
Prices start from £18.99 for a 50x32cm (13"x20") sack.
If you prefer the more traditional stockings then Izabela Peters has this covered too. These come in the same materials and designs as the bags but in 2 sizes Large (40x30cm/ 16"x12") and Extra Large (60x35cm/ 24"x14"). They also start from £18.99.
We all know Christmas doesn't stop there, Izabela Peters also has tablecloths and bunting.
Fear not, Izabela Peters has the rest of the year covered too. From the gorgeous swimming, pump (p.e.) and lunch bags
to ipad cases
there is sure to be something for everyone, why not have a look for yourself and let me know your favourites.
Keep an eye out on my blog for more appearances of my lovely christmas sack, I have great plans for it before Christmas Day.
