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!
Those tie cakes are great! I like your new header. Remember I mentioned the Eclipse t-shirt quilt a few weeks ago?
You DID leave a comment! I went back through my comments. See my feeble, over-40 mind?
Great bags! I especially like the colors in the paisley print; so fresh
Love the cargo bag, wasn’t it fun to make?? I love that paisley bag as well, the colors are so pretty together.
I really like that camo back, and your new header is awesome!!!!!
…or “bag” if I would type slower. 😉
