I love these oriental fabrics. The design piece in the centre (front and back)was made using my embroidery machine. The size of the bag is 11" square and inside has a divided pocket and can accomodate a cell phone etc....I make beaded zipper pulls to add on which makes the opening and closing much easier.
I plan to list a series of this type of bag in my Etsy shop.... I really enjoy making them....
Well honestly I think I surf the net too much!!
I came across this podcast on how to make tote bags as well as other things out of plastic grocery bags..... How could I NOT want to try this ??!!I save all the bags, and what I don't use for trash I save and give to the second hand stores where they use them to wrap things they sell...
Anyway I rounded up some bags and cut them into strips.....then I tied them to-gether in a very neat and easy way the gal in the video demonstrated....and "Voila"..... I have a nice amount ready to crochet and just started to see what it would be like.... I think I like it!! hee hee
Actually I had quite a bit done but I didn't like the shape so I am starting again... stay tuned....EVERY DAY A NEW EXPERIENCE!!!!
