Today im working on these gift bags for the Mulgrave Makers Market this sunday. I made some for the last market and had lots of pleasant comments over them. They are in three different sizes. Simple small ones above, just two different pages sewn together with handles placed into the seams.
The medium were very tricky as I tried to make a concertina-ed bag, why do I always try hard stuff?
I chose to fast dry the glue in the sun (because these medium ones took three stages of glueing!) weighted down by things close at hand as they kept wanting to blow away. At least I didnt use the bike.
And then the large ones which were so much simpler, kind of in-between the small and the medium timewise to complete.
I cut the edges like old fashioned lunch bags. I love zig zag edges. Frankie and Ray has been getting into it too over here.
The medium ones at the finished stage. They do look good but they are sooo not worth
the amount of time spent.
I have Etsy orders coming out of my eyesockets and people even want some eskimo jackets. So im hoping to start these by tonight.
Just as soon as I walk the dog,
make a long list for the week so I dont forget anything,
visit the post office,
go to the bank,
personally deliver an order for a nice customer who lives local,
pick up fabric,
go to the gym (I may give this a miss as its all the way into the city),
prep some furniture ready for painting (im so hoping to do this while the weather is good),
and perhaps sneak into the local oppy to find some more blankets.
Im wondering what everyone else is up to on this fine monday?
