My son, camo boy, had worn out a pair of cargo pants.  They were too small to turn into shorts, so I used a wonderful tutorial over at Noodlehead to make a messenger bag.  This tutorial makes a nice size bag for an adult, but I resized it to make the bag for my son.

Speaking of boys, I came across this interesting web site about ties.  The author has an interesting collection of tie cakes on this post.  That is one area of repurposing that I haven’t tried yet – making something out of old ties.

Speaking of repurposing, Implausible Yarn was part of a discussion on Ravelry about Bella’s quilt.  I haven’t seen the movie, so I was not aware that Bella receives a T-Shirt quilt.  Don’t you want to make one now???  Now that it’s cool to have a T-Shirt quilt!  (I’m really not into the movies.  I did not read the books and only saw the first movie.  I don’t love any of the characters – or the actors, for that matter.  I know, I know, I’m weird!)

Speaking of making things, Sari used my Oversized Beach Tote Tutorial to make this adorable bag.  She added pockets for cell phones, sun screen, etc.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Speaking of bags, here’s the latest ones in my shop.

Speaking of books (we weren’t speaking of books?) I just finished “The Girl With the Pearl Earring” and I’m currently reading “The Book Thief.”

Speaking of speaking, I do it WAY too much!  Wish I could talk to you all in person!
