I spent two days sewing water bottle bags, simple, lined purses with a long strap to hold a water bottle and keys, to raise money for my presidential candidate.  I sold them for a $20 donation each.  Many people were eager to donate a twenty, providing that they didn't have to give out personal info.  It was such an easy fundraiser.  Beats having a bake sale.  I called it my "Craft-orama."  My preserves-making sister might have a "Jam-orama."

Left, glow-in-the-dark fabric, right, Liberty of London print.
I used the Jordy tutorial.  The sides are 8"x10" and the straps 46"-56".

My haircutter friend and some of her friends are doing a "Bangs for Obama" fundraiser today on the sidewalk in a posh Berkeley neighborhood.  She's trimming bangs for a donation.  She's also selling a tee shirt she designed that says on it, "Abstinence only... for your  daughter, but not for mine.  Vote '08"

So many people are passionate about the outcome of this election.  Many are very happy to part with a twenty dollar bill.  Now I'm knitting egg cozy sweaters for Obama.  It takes me two hours to knit them.  Don't know how much to charge.
