I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Yesterday, we enjoyed a lovely day of family and food, first at E's parents', then mine. Three-day weekends are the perfect length to get stuff done and do nothing.I just had to sew up a tote for myself after I experienced how easy and fast they are to make. This is from one of the Martha towels. I first saw them a while ago but knew I would rather use them for something other than dish towels. The print reminds me of the fabrics in Lotta's book. I can't wait to see her textiles when they come out!
This one, like the fruit bags, is lined, but it would be such a snap to sew up some unlined ones to use for fruits and veggies at the supermarket. I only have one cloth bag that's designated for produce because of its size, and you can see in my last post that I need some more! For regular groceries I use larger store bought canvas bags, but the veggies do better off by themselves. I've been using the cloth bags for a few months now, which reduces the number of plastic ones being used, but there was an unexpected benefit as well. Using the cloth bags has also greatly reduced the bag clutter under the sink. No matter how much you ball the bags up and stuff them inside one another, those bags just seem to grow and multiply. But no more! I love my cloth bags. And that collection may soon start to multiply, but that would be A Good Thing.
Don't forget to leave a comment on the last post :)
