90 bags finished!

Each year, I make a set of plain calico tote bags for a Kindy. They use them for the kids to take their artwork home at the end of the year, and the kids get to paint and decorate their own bag.

This year they asked for 90 bags, and I've just finished making them.

I only miscounted the number of handles I needed to make by one....

I shall put it somewhere safe, then I can use it when I make more bags next year! (assuming I can remember where that 'safe' place was in a years time! :)

90 of these bags meant an awful lot of straight lines and plain calico.

Now I need to do some colourful and curvy sewing for a change!!


  1. That is a LOT of sewing!! How nice that you could do that for them.

  2. You just got elevated to WONDER WOMAN in my book! Seriously, what a great thing to do!

  3. You really need a super creative project now, Jill.

    1. I do Pam - and I feel like this every year. I'm looking at my enormous stash of fabric and other stuff and trying to get my head around all the possibilities!

  4. Way to go! I think I would've lost my mind around bag number 5, I can't believe you 90!


I love comments and try to respond to them all. Thanks for taking the time !
