I like the idea of using household fabrics for totes!

So many times old curtains, bed linens, tablecloths, etc. just get tossed!

Cut them up for totes, fabric bowls, etc.

Lovely to have an outside pocket as well!

ah, yes, the blight...everyone has to be careful with spreading plant diseases!  We had a bad tomato and pepper blight a few years ago...if that happens, you cannot plant in the soil for three years!!

I will remember to take pics of my little containers! I am very happy with your idea!

I love the wavy fabric and I think you did great getting the colors of the Mariners right on!

BTW--sharks do smile...Cheesy...right before they are ready to attack!

Very pretty!

I love this scarf for the spring and early fall because it is so lightweight...I am making a silver glitter one for wearing with my boring black dress for all those silly company parties! I finished a red glitter one this past weekend...I will post it this weekend...fast and rewarding is right!

What a great upcycle!  I bet it was fun challenging yourself to use up every little bit...it must have been like putting together a jigsaw puzzle!

I love that all of them are functional!

The scraps can be used for stuffie or dotee hair...or maybe something for the birds to use in nesting! Cheesy

I lost a bunch of supplies in a flood in 2004...I never use bags anymore! Cheesy

holy cow!  What a wonderful gift...for anyone!! Cheesy

Love all of your details and how you found new uses for everyday stuff...the repurposed card...and the cutest little crochet door mat...the button drawer pulls...the brad curtain rods...

It shows that you had fun...and hope Eden lets you play as well!
14390  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: AB High Street Messenger Bag Question... on: April 07, 2011 07:33:14 AM
For a bag with lots of pieces, I use a diagram with my steps and number each piece...I did this because I have mixed up pieces that fit, but the patterns did not match!

I think with the AB bags, you need to take extra time to match patterns, plan in advance, and then take your time...you also want to use the best quality fabric you can afford because it is a lot of work...but really, not all that difficult once you execute your plan...

I think it takes three times as long for me to plot it out then to actually make it!

I would go for it as long as you feel confident in your sewing skills...you might make some mistakes, but the learning process is part of the fun!!
