A big day today! I have been fervently working on an order of ten market bags this week!! This was my first big order. Here they are in process...I love how the pins and Christmas lights blur together!
While it was exciting, for sure, to have such a big order...it was also a bit daunting trying to quickly and efficiently get them all done...But, with nose to the grindstone, plenty of fabrics to pick from, and only one almost trip to the fabric store to buy some more cotton webbing...they are done! (The almost trip, involved a meltdown of one child in the car on the way to the fabric store, which then resulted in a necessary turn around, ugh, to go another day...) But, hooray, they are done!!
Did you catch the pretty "ribbon" around the package? It was actually made out of my scraps! As I was trimming my seam allowances on the bags I watched a pretty pile of fabric scraps piling up. It seemed a shame to throw them away so, I tied them all together to use to tie up packages. Pretty, and not wasteful!
Have a wonderful weekend!
