Don’t know when it started, but I like bags – tote bags. I’ve been to classes or conferences where the goodies include a tote bag stamped with the title of the event. I’ve been sight-seeing and find a tote bag.
In the past year or so, grocery and other stores have been ‘going green’ and offer re-usable bags and even some of them will give a discount of 3-5-cents if you provide your own bag. Soon a law will go into affect which requires the use of re-usable bags or you will be charged a fee.
So now I have an excuse to use some of the tote bags I’ve been collecting. Or maybe I have an excuse to get some more tote bags.
Or maybe, I have an excuse to MAKE some tote bags……
In the past several years, I have made a number of bags – Simple bags, zippered bags, Baby/Diaper bag, purses, quilt bags, quilted bags, and lunch bags.
This past week, I made three bags – one for the daughter of a neighbor and two for my cousins in Florida. I had some left-over fabric, so I made matching ‘Humbug’ bags & travel tissue cases.
I also made a ‘Humbug’ Bag for another cousin, and a Camo-Tote Bag with matching ‘In Training’ Vest for Triton, the 3-legged dog we’re training to be an assistance dog for a Marine.
Another project I’ve done this past week is to add Velcro to some patches – Kim had some embroidered patches made for the dog backpacks & vests, which I added Velcro to the patches & vests/backpacks.
