California Bag!

Two green bag lady bags plus a (reused) paper bag for structure -- groceries, and plants for the garden all aboard a cargo bike. Reuse, reduce (bags + pollution), recycle!

What are you up to this holiday weekend? Hubby is elk hunting while the kids and I catch our breath from the craziness of back to school. Hugs--Teresa

Workday Wednesday

This week I sewed some note cards…
 Serged some handles (this is what my pants look like after a serging session)…
 Serged some bags and matched them to handles…
 Finished another pair of oven mitts that I started way back when
 Made Little Girl a pencil case for school…
Here is the inside. I used this pattern that I made for Sew Mama Sew a while back and just increased the size. I like how it turned out. Maybe a tutorial in the future? The faux leather came from a friend and I love how the yellow inside is a nice cheery contrast from the black and grey…
What are you up to this week? Teresa

Birdie, Birdie Freebie!

Here we are in the craziness that is back to school, fall activities and general mayhem. We need some birdie fun to get us through, don't we? I don't know what it is but I am drawn to bird fabric. I love it when we get some as part of a fabric donation. I even made a bag out of the flour bag I talked about in this post. I buy this flour all the time now. Not only does it come in fabric but it's local too! You will see more of the Blue Bird Flour bags as I keep washing and adding them to the Green Bag Lady stack.

I have got to see this.

I'd like to read this.

Beautiful!

Update your frig!

Cute upcycle.

Fascinating.

No brainer.

Workday Wednesday

I've been a busy girl the last few days. I made yet another tennis bag

 Stuffed some pretty pet beds…
 Packed up a box of bags for Bagette Dad…
 Ran some handles through the serger…
 Ran some bags through it too…
And discovered that a bull snake lives under my front step…
Yikes! What are you up to this week? Teresa
