"Container"


Are they pepper mills? Or coffee bean grinders? Or something entirely else-ish? Only the people who used to have these beauties hanging in their kitchen window will ever really know. But one thing is for sure. Now that they've been whipped up into a Darfur bag; the are part of a marvelous container- a bag that will contain all the stuff you need to walk out into your world, shoulders squared, and make a difference.

I must confess that this red bit with the grindy things on it is a real favourite of mine. I love the green branch accents, the red, green, and gold, and the "old-ness" of the print. I keep thinking that I've used up the last bit of these curtains, and then another piece will surface from the bottom of an XXL ziploc bag and I'm happy all over again. The same goes for the burgandy fabric with the plaid strips sewn on. I keep bumping into more remnants of it, and I never do tire of it.

Toned down and paired up with deep red and bold black, this bag is a happy eye-catcher.
From 6:00-ish to exactly 6:00, central standard time, I will be checking to see who would like to hang this beaut from their very own shoulder.

I would have loved to have seen photo's of the inside of the 'Container' perhaps it has secret pouches, pockets, etc.? Thank you for continuing to care for Darfur and for sharing your passion for sewing with all your visitors' and winners. Penny :-)

Penny- you are right that I have been neglecting photographing the insides. This bag has two inner pockets,both in plaid. One blue plaid, the other reddish plaid.
On future pics I'll try to remember to get the interiors.

wow, nice posting JenS! In my defense, my toddler came by at the wrong moment and shut off the computer (!!!!!), but still, it's hard to beat 6:00 :-)
