Brace Yourself I’m on a roll today. Not only do I post twice, but I also finished this house warming present.
It is a plastic bag storer. For those who haven’t seen one before – and I am I’m sure you all have as they were incredibly popular a few years ago – you stuff your plastic grocery bags in the skirt through the hole in the bottom where the elastic will hold them until you need a bag. It’s a great way to recycle those bags which would otherwise be thrown out and clog up land fill.
I have two of these. A large one like this – where I put bigger bags, and a smaller one (which looks like a cat) for smaller plastic bags as there is nothing more annoying than pulling out half a dozen bags before finding one the size that you want.
So there is another present finished and I am so pleased with this little lady. The apron is made using some of my hand dyed fabric with a beautiful piece of lace which was just the right size and width for the job. I even had ribbon the right colour for a change to tie in her “hair” and around the sleeves. How’s that for lucky?
I have also made really good progress on the skirt bag there is only the handles to be added and I need Elise’s approval before I sew that on. Photos soon.
