Goodbye to plastic bags


Laundry bag, originally uploaded by -syko-.

My mum and sister visited us a couple of weeks ago and we discussed what to do with the small laundry that is produced during a trip. And we agreed that plastic bags are no good for socks and stuff. Or shoes. So I came up with this new practical idea for a product. The cotton drawstring bag is washable in itself too.

Not much to tell otherwise, sewing and creating. How I love my days! Oh, I did some shopping, got older last week so thought I needed some presents... I'm waiting for another order. Who can resist a clothesline fabric really (I promise to show it off when it arrives!)?

I took the handmade pledge, we're going to have a handmade Christmas! Some gift ideas: 5-year old daughter, 2-year old son, 26-year old graphic designer brother. These would be great for all of them. More etsy gifts later!

I've decided to do all my Christmas shopping on Etsy this year...there's just so much to choose from.

Hooray for the Handmade Pledge!!

Your new laundry/shoe bags are absolutely precious! I'm partial to the clothesline one... as painting little clotheslines used to be my "trademark". I would paint them on everything.

Hope you had a happy happy birthday!! xox..jenn
