This afternoon Biggie showed me his homework. One of the things he needed for school tomorrow was a plastic grocery bag. I already knew that we did not have one single plastic bag in the house since I had been hunting for one earlier. All our groceries are delivered these days so we just don't have them anymore. I am also pretty good at using my eco-totes when I do shop. Our kindly neighbor was only too happy to oblige even filling the bag with delicious creme brulee puddings.
Tonight's sewing project ties in nicely with this story. I have sewn quite possibly the world's cutest eco-tote. Matryoshka or Babooshka dolls have been popular in their printed form for a couple of years. This new fabric from Kokka is the best I've seen. Simply adorable.
As for the bag, it's still in prototype mode. The handles seem a bit wide and short. The order in which I sewed it together has resulted in some seams I don't like. Still it is completely functional and finished with French seams. I may use it myself or sell it off cheap to a friend. I do love it despite its design pitfalls.
