It’s been a while since I made a tote bag/shopping bag from a repurposed bag. For months I’ve been stashing feed, flour, sugar and rice bags. My stash grew so large I stopped saving all but the most unique. Time for making one never seemed to roll around, but yesterday I determined to put one together and last night while dh was working I got it finished.
I started out with a Pennington Wild Bird Feed sack and a pair of cast-off, bluejeans leftover from a fund-raiser yard sale for the lining. A size 5 fit this bag perfectly with no adjustment needed in the width of the waistline. Using bluejeans for the lining have the added bonus of ready-made pockets for stashing small items or coupons. I used a small piece of calico trim I purchased from Catherine a while back along the top. (Catherine hosts a Catherine’s Vintage Linens offering modestly priced treasures..)
Time to get back to my Monday. I’m trying to resist the urge to sluff off today…and getting motivated to start another project when I get the needful things around the house finished. I hope you are having a blessed day.
Until next time…
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us. ~ Augustine ~
We have proof of that…
