Maedeup Monday!

I made these burlap gift bags and embellished them using some dongsimgyeol maedeup knots that I had made previously.  I also added a square of ramie from my bojagi (Korean quilting) stash.  The buttons are also from Korea.  I have them listed in my Etsy shop for sale.
 
The dongsimgyeol maedeup is a very special knot.  Brides in Korea commonly wore it as a symbol of loyalty and good luck.  The knot signified that the couple would be of the same temperament and there would be harmony between the two.  It is also commonly known as the one mind and good luck knot.
 
Of course, Louie had to come over to see what was going on.
