And yet another new project... sigh!

Well, I've done it again... veered off course to delve into something new (for me)... grocery tote bags! The pressure is on to reduce/eliminate our use of plastic bags, and I had one of those 'AHA' moments... opportunity to be a part of the solution by creating something I can sell! And so I am diving into my stash, scouring the fabric store remnant piles, taking donations from friends, to create as many 'low-cost' totes as I can find the time to make. Here is a sample of what I have done so far:
The fabric for this one isn't very exciting, but I loaded 9 pounds of groceries from my pantry into it! And I love the design... easy to make, rolls up conveniently for storage and transporting to the store. Now I just need to convince the baggers at the store that I want them to be used! I have a friend who is going to take a bunch with her to a 3-day craft fair over July 4th weekend, and we will see how they sell. I hope to become the premier bag lady of Flagstaff!
