It’s been a crazy week here. I got bronchitis and pretended I didn’t have it until I finally had to go to the Doc and get all hopped up on meds so I could continue to pretend I was not sick. But with track and cheer practices, other people’s Dr appts., errands, groceries laundry and the occasional farm project/animal/ smell/ broken-down things etc, I just can’t seem to be sick for real. So a z-pack and a shot in the butt later…. UP and at it I am.
I did, however, manage a little time in my craft room.
There are a lot of tutorials out there for these bags so I won’t do that, but I wanted to show you my spin on it. I wanted some character to these bags so I found ones with sayings, graphics and of course, bands. I own a lot of band shirts. No boring bags here. So here are a couple of ideas to get your creative juices flowing. I love the idea of adding laces and trims and buttons and fringe and whatever else you can think of to these recycled bags. I collect trims and buttons and pendents and here is an excuse to use them. They are great for the grocery store, take along craft supplies, swimming pool trips, sleepovers, storing stuff, and just to pal around with. I’m going to make up a few for the craft show I promised myself I would do this year and for my girls who never seem to have enough places to put stuff.
