Absence Make the Heart Grow Fonder

Sorry to disappear there folks, but I've had a couple of very exciting and very busy weeks. I started a new job, I may have found the perfect apartment (if I can just get the landlord to send me the lease) and I took a trip out to the far suburbs and got hopelessly sunburned. Suffice it to say, blogging was not a top priority! I've missed it though, and I'm brimming with things to share, so here I am, back and better than ever (except for the aforementioned skin issue).

Thanks to those of you who played along last post. The mysterious packet was, in fact, a grocery tote! Congrats to Sarah C. who was 100% correct! I love to use reusable bags, but so often I find myself stopping last minute after work, or forgetting my bags at home, etc. My roommate and I, despite the best of intentions have still accrued quite a collection of plastic bags. I'm trying to design a bag that can be easily folded up and placed in a purse, so its always available!

They're fun to make and I would imagine that they'd be great stash-busters. My mom was telling me how she has more florals left over from a Grandmother's Flower Garden project than she'll ever be able to use. Florals would be so cute in a project like this. Pair them up with plain canvas, and voila! Instant earth-friendly chic!

I still have quite a few kinks to work out and unfortunately not a lot of time to work with, but hopefully I'll have a pattern for these babies ready soon!

Looks like the bag is coming together very nicely!
