Anyway, what is a Quirky Bag? Well it's what I'm calling my line of re-usable snack and Veggie / Fruit bags. No more wasting plastic bags when buying fruit and veggies from the store or farmers market. No more wasting bags on snacks for kids lunches or car rides. So why Quirky bags as a name? I'm calling them that because they are well quirky. I haven't perfected the straight line and the bags are kinda uneven and not to mention the stitches are wierd in some places. I like how the bottoms of some are thinner and then get wider towards the top, or some are slightly slanted. This was not done on purpose, I'm just learning, but I love the look. Therefore Quirky bags was born. I'm going patent that name, so don't try to steal it, please.
How cute are these? I bought the fabric for only 1.50 a yard a Walmart. You can't beat that. The inside is lined with like a smooth silky almost nylon material that is super easy to clean. That's velcro people so you can keep your contents sealed. They were so easy to make and came out so good, you would have thought I'd been sewing for years and I've never touched a machine. Not to mention they take like no time at all to make!!
If I can do this, then so can you. Do you like em? I just purchased lime green with pink polka dots and the inside will be a bright yellow. I can't wait to make those. The BF had me purchase a fish material to make him some bags he can use in his car to store loose change and other stuff. I'm going to be a busy bee as I was sewing all day yesterday and ignored my blog and comments to everyone. I'm sorry, you just have no idea how much fun this is.
Loving sewing, can't wait to make more!! BTW these pictures are from my blackberry phone and do not do the bags justice. They are way cuter in person!!
PS: Bunny update. This morning the bunny was sleeping on my lawn. She is so cute, I've named her LOLA. We fed her two carrots this morning and she ate them. I feel so bad that she's out in the cold mornings and hot afternoons, but then again she's been living like this for years. It's just strange how all of a sudden she out and about. She's just way to friendly to be a wild bunny. I don't know what to do.
GOING GREEN HAS NEVER BEEN MORE FUN!!
