me!!! wearing the bag


guess what remnants lying around the house were used to make the bag?  Stuff I have been meaning to throw out for YEARS and I sat in the house in the rain, sewed them together and made a bag.

bonus points for the strap and where you think I got it.  and I have had it for over 2 decades…

let the games begin.!!!!!!!!!!

    I am guessing you gathered the lint from your drier, dyed it with leaves from your garden and re-wove it on your loom.
    I love it. It is the EXACT size and shape I need for my phone and my fags TIA.

    I have tried to type a comment twice tonight and lost it both times or you will be getting several from me. Talked to M tonight and she told me about this comment thing so I went down stairs and found it but I don’t really know how, so anyhow, my answer to the bag, cute bag, and you did a very good job. The material game from garbage can in your local neighborhood, and the tie is a ribbon from some flowers that you received many years ago, 20 probably,
    Been a very good day here, we went over to the city park for a walk, beautiful fall colors and just a nice day. Temperature up to 68, no frost yet but the weatherman says we can expect rain for the next 6 days. I don’t mind a rainy day, time to clean house.
    Hope all is well there and let me know what I win when I find out that I AM RIGHT. Love,Grandma H.
