I. do. not. need. any. more. bags.  But just look at that apple print.  And CHICKENS.  who can resist chickens (that’s a rhetorical question…)  I didn’t like the shape or style of the chicken bag but just couldn’t resist it.  Monday afternoon found me ripping out some of it (the pleats and the handle) and sewing  some demin to the top… I need to figure out a new handle and then I will be set to go.
