1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Set of (12) Muslin Produce Bags on: July 04, 2010 04:16:37 PM
Most of the time, there are little stickers with the price code on the produce so the cashier has to type the code in and weigh it before ringing it up.  At the store where I get my bulk food (flours and such) we weigh it ourselves, enter the code, and it prints out a sticker.

I love these bags too!  I bought some from reusablebags.com awhile ago that are made from recycled plastic bottles.  I need more though so I may make some like this!

Just the window is vinyl.  Though, if the whole thing were lined in vinyl, that would help keep the food fresh.  As it is, I use these in the store instead of more plastic bags and transfer the food/flour to jars when I get home.  I made some snack bags without the window awhile ago and my daughter loves them!
I'm not sure yet how to wash them...I will probably just wash them by hand but I would think they would be okay in the washing machine on cold, just not in the dryer. 
The closures are velcro - it goes all the way across the top to help prevent spillage.
We don't have the facilities for recycling those types of bags so I have them in a closet (I can't seem to throw them away!)  I almost broke down and bought bags similar to these online (too expensive!) when I happened upon a little bag that I think my daughter's panties came in and I probably got more excited about the revelation than what would be considered normal...

I finally found a use for all those plastic/vinyl bags that bedding comes in!

I whipped these up quickly yesterday before my trip to the grocery store.

Large for flours and such

Small for snacks

Medium for everything in between (or granola for me)

I've done the recipe in a jar thing before which was a lot of work!  I think this year I might just make up some batches of my squirrel food - much healthier than most anything else you'll get and still really yummy!  Since I'm working full-time and pumping 3x a day, and forget to eat all the time so I keep a jar on my couch where I nurse and pump and another jar in my car where I spend most of my time for work.

Squirrel Food:
dry roasted almonds
dried cranberries
dried blueberries
dried cherries

...plus any other nuts, berries, and seeds you fancy!

Looks nice!  I had wanted to do that with copies of old album covers.  I love Hanson too - they are way underappreciated!

Katie - you aren't by chance in the MSW program at Mizzou are you?  Your name sounds familier.  I just graduated from the program.

Those are wonderful!  I agree you should make more - the space would look great with a few more.

I have an absolutely massive stack of Vouge, W, and Gourmet magazines I need to take to the recycling bin -  wonder if this would work as a decoupage on a table for my nursery...
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Things I have learned about sewing (feel free to add...) on: June 13, 2008 06:35:41 AM
I think I use my crappiest sewing machine the most!  I got my mother-in-law's old Singer that she never used and it's a really nice machine.  Unfortunatly, it has a different type of bobbin than my other machines and not only is having two sets of bobbins a pain, but they cost like $2 each!

So cute!  My sis has been looking for some linen pants for her son and couldn't find any...this is motivating me to get an Ottobre subscription!
