Great ideas! I too can't bear to throw out the bags. With 4 dogs we go through PLENTY of 50# bags....the empties are stacking up for some reuse. I tried once to make a christmas tree storage bag with them and duct tape....um, don't ask it wasn't quite the success I had hoped for.
I'm sooo sooo soooo excited. I got an incredible deal on a Baby Lock machine, sewing table, cutting table and rolling case on craigslist. All of it 1 year old, tables were still in the box!!! Just wanted to share my joy! Now I must sell my collection of misfit machines before my husband has a fit!
