Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17

So they're not on the list...


...but I've had fabric pulled for grocery bags since I started Bottled Rainbows. I needed a quick gift AND Sewing Mamas had a bag challenge this month so I threw these together. I tried to make a zippered pouch on the inside; you know so you could fold the bag into and store in a purse. Dummy me forgot it would require turning the bag inside out to enfold the bag so I messed up the closure. Instead I have a zippered pouch sewn into the sides, maybe for cash or coupons or something! LOL--we learn from our mistakes! And, in true Murray's law fashion, the camera died after the first pic so I only have outsides to show. Next batch'll be better!

Not much sewing this week, I fear: I started pulling wallpaper and patching the walls in the bathroom for a quick makeover. Just paint and paper. Right. Is any home improvement project ever that simple?

It's always something, huh? :)

Love the bags... so useful for a lot of things other than groceries!
