Ready for Market


Always ready to use whatever scraps, pants or fabric is being tossed out, I grabbed a pile of my husbands jeans awhile back he was going to toss and decided I would cut them up for a rag quilt.

Saturday evening however, after another of my flimsy recycled shopping bags ripped, I sat at my trusty machine and made myself a bag to take to the market.

I left all the pockets open so if I am making a quick trip, I can toss my cell phone and wallet in them. On the way home, I can place smaller items like gum, candy, etc. that might get smashed on the bottom.

It took about 15 minutes from start to finish and now I have received 3 offers for people that want one.

It is another UFO completed!

I take the fabric bags all the time. I never thought of using the jeans that way, tho. Good idea.

That is so useful. What a great idea. I'll have to look through the jeans here and see what I can find.

I can't see that bag breaking easily if it's filled with canned or heavy goods. Great idea to leave all the pockets intact! Lol, you could accessorise by 'dressing' your bag with a different belt each outing.
