Project Bags

March 28, 2009

So after the RAKs of the last week, I decided to put together a few project bags to fill with stuff and send out.  These just need the drawstring and they’re done!




It took a lot less time than I thought.  I was able to get 6 out of two yards of fabric.  Well, I would have gotten 8 if the batik fabric hadn’t been cut crooked.  So I may get one big one from the left over.  The outside is a yellow/green batik I had left over from my quilting days, and the inside is a cotton I hand-dyed a few years ago for an ill-fated fabric sculpture.  I think four of these will go out to lucky tweasels, one will stay with me (the one with the pen marks-grrrrr- children!) and one will go to someone special, who can probably figure out who they are.  😉  

I think I’ll go get some more fabric next week and start on some more.  I have two aloha prints I think would be really nice, and two whole bins of fabric I don’t know what to do with.  I just need to get lining fabric and stuff for the drawstrings.  And then I’ll see if I can sell them on Etsy.  It’s like free money, and I have plenty of time!
