I received a custom order in my Etsy Shop for these three bags this weekend. I think the fabrics are so bright and cheerful and I like the shoulder length straps the buyer requested.
Black with purple pansies and a purple lining.
White with red poppies and a green lining.
Blue floral with a solid blue lining.
Ever since I bought the new book by Bonnie Hunter called "SCRAPS AND SHIRTTAILS" shown HERE at the Quiltville site, I have been planning a quilt made from men's cotton shirts. This is a project way down the road, as I'm going to work on the projects I've already started that are on my 2009 Sewing To Do List. But, there's nothing that says I can't be "dreaming" about new projects is there?!!!
I plan to be on the lookout for the men's shirts at thrift stores, yard sales and from discards by the three guys at my house. I've already been spying some great shirts in their closets that I could use, if they are ever discarded.
I bought these 4 shirts at a thrift shop this weekend for 39 cents each. I have already laundered them. My plan is to go ahead and deconstruct them and store them in their own storage tote in my newly organized sewing room.
Have a wonderful Tuesday and may your sewing dreams come true!
