The result? Doesn't she look stunning.
Next big news. I am going green.
Well, a little bit.
I think I've mentioned before my sickness of not being able to throw anything away (surely there's someone, somewhere, who'll be able to use x, y or z, right?). Well, that includes plastic grocery bags.
To be fair, I do use a lot of them for trash, wrapping nappies, etc. But I also have a cupboard full. At least I did until I bought this beautiful re-usable bag while I was in England. I brought it back to the US and have used it whenever I remember to bring it into the store from the car. I have been given some funny looks by cashiers.
Until this week, when my local grocery store, Publix, introduced a re-usable bag.
It's green. Beautiful, eh?! What do you mean, 'no'?
Well, this is where my crafty weekend comes in.....
Next time I go grocery shopping I'll be toting this little beauty. Actually, it's not that little - it can hold same as the brown and green bags combined.
Here's a flash of the fabric I used to line it.
And a close-up.
I learned a lot from sewing this bag together and will definitely be able to improve my next one. But all in all, I'm very proud of it.
It wasn't my only crafty project this weekend. I'll post more pics tomorrow.........
ooh, and I posted the stitchmarkers on Etsy. Something else accomplished. I will be making more of those this week, too. I have a couple more designs of beads to put together.
