I quickly came home and divided them up into batches, keep, share. Don asked which was the keep stack, being funny I guess. Of course it was the bigger stack. Ok, so maybe I kept too many. Not knowing what in the world I would do with them, it was just too good to pass up.
My first thought was to cover the grocery totes. Of course I've since used some of my fabrics from my temporarily halted growing stash.
Of course none of the fabric from my new stash worked so I found some old scraps that were just perfect and I made use of the raw edges. There is now a pocket on each end and with cardboard in the bottom, I'm set to go. Small bag to carry my journal and zentangles if I have to go sit at doctors office, etc.
This green tote, of course I love the green, carries my sewing supplies back and forth to my sewing bee weekly. Just a great size and sturdy.
Keep in mind that just when I think I'm done, along comes another tote that was hidden away. Don thinks they are having babies just begging to be altered.
So look around at all those totes you've aquired, pull out the scraps and do some altering. Have fun.
Hey, a tote could now be a gift when taking something to a neighbor or groceries to mama.
Come back from time to time and perhaps I'll just add some of the other totes to this post.
