Since showing you my reusable fabric grocery bag a couple of weeks ago, I've made another nine shopping bags. Ten bags all up - six for me and four will become presents.
Today I'll show you the bags I made as presents - two bags for each recipient. Once again I've used Michelle's Patterns PDF Grocery Bag Pattern (affiliate link). It's a great pattern - see the full review I've written, and better photos.
Unlike the other eight bags, the one above, (and another the same) are made with the same fabric throughout. No pretty fabric here, as I wanted them to be usable by either a male or female.
I've been hoarding this text fabric for ages, wondering what to make with it. I knew it would have to be something food related, but the right project didn't surface until now.
I can't find the full name on the selvedge, but with the little info I have, plus a Google search, I'm fairly certain it's Pam Kitty Picnic - Recipe for Success - Lake House Dry Goods.
I can't decide which handles I like the best - the red polka dots or the black. Which do you prefer?
The photos are not the best, but I was in a hurry to get the post up so as not to miss out on this month's Ho Ho Ho and On We Sew.
Fiona, from Celtic Thistle Stitches is helping us to get organised for Christmas, with the Ho Ho Ho and On We Sew link parties. Each month there will be...
- a link party where everyone can add their Christmas makes
- guest hosts with a tutorial for a Christmas / holiday-themed gift or home decoration item
- a giveaway
One lucky person will win a super cute Feed the Animals coin purse PDF pattern, courtesy of Stephanie, from Elephant in My Handbag. If you want to be in the running, all you need to do is link up your Christmas / holiday makes over at Sandra Sews - there's still ten hours left to enter.
I was hoping to sew at least one Christmas present each month of this year. I'm way behind, but at least I've started and now I can cross off two more presents...
