Tote-ally Useful

There's something about the bikes, backyard blankets, and gardening gadgets coming out that makes me want to sew up a couple of tote bags.

And what better way to do so than by employing an old flour sack?

(donated by.... Someone wonderful. Mrs R?)

I love the pale blue lettering. I used one portion of the sack to form an exterior pocket, and supplied velcro for your closing convenience.

Here's the bag flipped inside out to better indicate the pockets. One large blue pocket, and some durable ticking fabric on the other side, divided into three pocket sections. Backing it all up is a funky old thrift shop table cloth.
This tote bag will remain available all week. Well, we'll conclude the week on Thursday evening at 9:30 pm, cst. I'll accept any starting bids above $15.00 Cdn.
Please leave your bids in the comment section of this post.
(Leave your comments there too!)

trying to remember the bag... was it that piece of a quilt bag? musta been. I think that one had stone ground on it?

Ms. Caddywumpus said...

Bingo! Such a long time until Thursday...

Ms. Caddywumpus, I totally thought of your bag when I saw this. I hope you win.

I won I won I won!

I realized at 1030 last night that I forgot to go on here and check. I'm so happy this morning!

Joyce, I'm in Manitoba later this month - I'll send a cheque as payment but I'll coordinate to fetch it in mid-May, if that's OK. Saves the postage and I may have some fabric for you.

I have some flour sack pants and shorts that we had made in . . . I think it was Zaire - (now DR Congo). I have not seen them for years, but I bet they are somewhere in the bowels of the basement or the garage. Some day, when I clean up, I will have a great parcel for you - but don't hold your breath - I am a dreamer - not a doer. That is why I so admire doers, like you.
