First finish for 2008!

Here is my first finish for 2008! A reusable (and washable) market bag! I almost have 3 more done. 3 of them are Christmas gifts (yes I have a few more I need to make and give). This was a great mindless project for today.

Notice no unfinished seams inside! I used heavy weight decorating fabric, it was kind of fun looking at a different section of the fabric store!

Check out my friend Nann's progress report for 2007.....it is something to read!

What a great idea. I need to do that with as much as I go to the store. thank God for recycling.

I love that fabric, and what a great bag. I made one for my kid the other day, it was pretty disastrous, but it was my first tote. Do you have a pattern for yours?

Great work you did ALREADY!!!

I sure could use some Market Bags. I'll have to think that over.

Went to Nann's blog - thanks for sharing.

I've read Nann's annual report before and it always amazes me. She's incredibly prolific!
