Reusable Shopping Bags

At our house we are committed to reducing our impact and have switched from paper napkins to cloth, we no longer buy paper towels, we compost and we use reusable shopping bags. I made two new reusable shopping bags for a swap.

The first one I affectionately named the watermelon bag for obvious reasons, was made from some scrap fabrics, the green I got at the Crate and Barrell outlet for about $0.05 and the pink came from Jo-Ann’s for about $0.25. Score! I really didn’t want to give it away. The second bag was a stash buster, just some cool fabrics I had laying around.

Cork Wreath. BF and I made three of these this year for various family members and friends. Upcycled corks are boiled and dried before glued on to the wreath. I made personalized bags for all three of them too.

Over Thanksgiving I taught my BF’s niece how to crochet and then her x-mas wish list, to my delight, included crochet items. So I made this case for her hooks and a new hook. She is 12. This is my first ever quilted project. I just dove in. Didn’t really use a tutorial, I just kinda winged it. Turned out pretty much the way I wanted it to.
