bags

Have you heard??  We’re going to have to start paying for our plastic habit at the grocery store.  You can avoid the hit to your pocket book, reduce your dependence on plastic and feel good about using something you made yourself.  Your bag will be a better conversation starter than your latest hairdo.

Join us on August 22, 2008 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm to make your own original bag (or 2 or 3) to store in your car or bike basket for your next shopping trip.  These one of a kind bags are made from fabric that was saved from the landfill and your personal *trash*.  The pattern is easy enough for beginning sewers and there will be others to help you out if you get stuck.

Bring a snack to share, your sewing machine, scissors, thread, rotary cutter and a cutting mat if you have one.  Also, if you want to incorporate a fancy pocket – bring a little *trash* goodie – something that shows off your decadence, your midnight indulgence, your organic-ness or whatever you just tossed in the trash can!

Hope to see you there!
