Grocery Bag Dispenser...s

It is rare.
Yes, a rainy weekend here in the sticks.
You know what that means.


Lots of Java and Sewing.

When I saw Jen's post over at Glinda Quilts about her bag making
(She's almost a bag lady, in a good kind of way)
I knew exactly what I was going to sew up.
Thank you, Jen, for sharing.


A grocery (shopping) bag dispenser.

And if you are going to make one,
why not make 3?

I've needed one of these for a very long time.
I have bags stuffed in drawers, under cabinets, and in a trash bag in the garage for recycling.
(You could almost call me a bag lady)
But, now I'm an organized bag lady.


After I made one for my house following this tutorial at Moda Bake Shop,
I made my daughter one.


I used Pat Sloan's Eat Your Fruits and Veggies fabric by Moda for the first 2.

Then I decided I better make one more.


For my sewing room!
I decided to add a ruffle to the top of this one.

These are so much fun to make and the tutorial is easy to follow. 
 I love that they are quilted which is a good practice for my free motion skills.

So that was my weekend project..s.

Today was the last day of the

I made one a long time ago, but I didn't quilt it.....it hangs funny. I think I'll try a quilted one. Thanks for the information.
Guess what !

I'm with Vickie, I made one a few years ago but mine wasn't quilted. It does hang funny. Hmmmm, maybe I'll make another one soon. Thanks for sharing. Oh and yes, the rain is WONDERFUL! We had some much needed rain here in Texas too.
