I have decided to make some shopping bag for my NewFO this month. I am making the shopping bags out of Christmas fabric and will use them for wrapping presents. Then, instead of throwing away paper, I'll be reusing them for shopping! This wasn't my idea originally, it was the Green Bag Lady's idea. I volunteer with the Colorado Chapter of the Green Bag Lady project and when we met last time, Teresa had us working on shopping bags that were made with Christmas fabric.
I had be busy preparing for Thanksgiving and trying to get some of my sewing done, so my sewing area was quite a mess! I'm also preparing our condo for a new couch and love seat that my sister-in-law is giving us. They are redoing their family room and decided to do it with several recliners instead. Yipee for me!
Well, now that Thanksgiving is over and the new furniture is here and settled in, I've finally gotten a chance to do some more sewing. I had planned on making some snowmen mug rugs but that didn't work out. I did however get my Christmas bags made.
I think this is first NewFO project that I started and finished in the same post. Maybe I'll squeeze those snowmen mug rugs in before Christmas after all.
