I had an idea to create tote bags out old t-shirts for a PTA fundraiser when my kids were in school. A luncheon with a recycling theme gave me inspiration to make table centerpieces with herb plants in these t-shirt bags. I reconnected with my middle school sewing skills and was successful in my endeavor. I haven't put my sewing supplies away yet and have continued to make bags.
Most recently I have been making project bags (small totes suitable for carrying around my projects) and planning a cross body bag out of a weaving . I love the rich texture of the woven fiber and didn't find fabric or yarn straps suitable, nor could I find a leather handle that I liked. So, like a good crafter, I ventured into Tandy Leather for supplies to make my own. Above is my first project with hand made leather handles (and adorable Corgi fabric!). I am so pleased with the outcome! Next up is the woven bag!
Inspired by this recent blog post I sat down and made this adorable mug rug!! I crocheted it with a sample of new Lang yarn that we have coming into the shop. I may make a bigger one as a plant rug. This is a quick, beginner-friendly crochet project and super cute to boot!
