Last week as I was feverishly finishing wedding dresses so I could be gone all day on Friday I had a last minute brain storm. I think it was about Wednesday night I thought 'wouldn't it be fun to make canvas shopping bags for the four of us to use!' I was thinking of the cool drop cloth I have laying here begging to be made into something fun. I told myself I didn't have time and went about my sewing that DID have to be done. But Thursday morning the idea was still lingering in the fuzzy edges of my brain. And then. I remembered the LINEN I had lying there. Now THAT would be a really cool shopping bag to take to a French Flea!!!
I called it 'advertising'!
The number ribbon was a fun accent. The tags I made using the Cavallini stamp set I got for Christmas and hadn't used yet.
The bags were a hit! They loved them:) And I must say that after carrying mine all day I was rather impressed with the size and shape and handle length.
Want one? I could probably be persuaded to make some more. There would be a price tag on them of course!!
