Tote Bags in Production


Halloween Bag Handles


Halloween Bag Lining


Like the little fellow in the picture, "I am just sew-sew-sew at present." That is, I am sewing day and night to be able to make some bags and aprons so that I can have a stall for the upcoming markets in September and October.

I am making Halloween cloth bags. My idea is to make them out of bandanas, the standard 100% cotton kind that have been around for years, well since my hippie days. I found them at Walmart and they have a great selection of red and pink owls, red and black with white skulls, orange and purple witches, and more! I am using my fabric stash to back and line the bags. Kids can go tricker-treating with them and they also are big enough to make natural fiber alternative shopping bags or autumn book totes.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I admire those who make things in plural. So far, I've only mastered the one-at-a-time thing. I do want to see the bags when they are done.

I just saw your q on my blog - I use wonky to mean askew, or a bit wobbly. As in - You walk a wonky line when you are half cut!! Or 10 sheets to the wind, etc

I wish I could find some fabric with a cute vintage military print. Love that image.

It is always amazing to us the way that Halloween is celebrates in the US. Here in Aus it is given very little attention and most often forgotten. We just realised that we will be leaving Texas on the 30th October and therefore will miss out on seeing a real american Halloween - we were very disapointed when we realised!! At least we can watch all of your crafting in blog land!! =)

The bags are a great idea! I love the little illustration of the soldier sewing!
