As it turns out, I have a bit of bunny-hugger in me. Or do I? That could be the chip in my head talking. At any rate, I take my own bags into the store to carry my purchases out. Up to now, I have had to depend upon the kindness of strangers (okay, not really strangers so much as my mother) and Etsy-ers to make me cool bags to carry. It’s because my sewing skills are seriously lacking. I’m pretty crafty – Martha-ish, if you will; but I have a hard time sewing a straight line. That’s partly why I was so impressed with myself for making this hand-made bag. It is an old t-shirt. I lopped the end off and then sewed a triple seam at the bottom. I cut the sleeves off and widened the opening (neck-hole) with pinking shears to finish it. I really like the results! I haven’t load tested it, but I have faith that at least one of the three seams will hold. At least I hope they will hold. It would be very embarrassing to have to chase rolling cans of beanie weenies around the Wal-Mart parking lot while irate mini-vanners wait for me to vacate my spot.
**If anyone knows how I can get my pictures centered up, I’d be forever in your debt if you would share that little tidbit with me. I know as a serious blogger I am also expected to know a thing or 2 about computers. And I do, I’m actually a computer genius in disguise. I’m just testing you to see if you know.
