I spent a large part of the day sewing. I think I will start doing more of it. I plan on making "crafty" things to sell at the farmer's market. The sign says "produce, arts and crafts." Today, I made a "practice" tote bag. I used a heavy red material. It turned out okay. I may put a cardboard in the bottom to stiffen it. I only had to take it apart a couple of times. Then, I made a preprinted apron with a bib. It turned out okay so I used it for a pattern for a blue print one. I cut it out but didn't sew it yet. I cut one two inches smaller and sewed it and it looks okay. Maybe, kid size or teen size to match the adult one. I may make a set of pot holders to match it. There is enough material left. I made a print apron without a bib. I want to make more of those tomorrow. I may make a lined tote, too. Glenda gave me some of that iron-on stuff that stiffens it a little. dr says I need to look for some webbing for handles. Some we have do have web handles and some just have doubled up material handles like the bag is made out of. I have some other ideas for things to make but I'm just getting started so the things I make will increase as I get into it. I think I did well for today because I got a late start. dooley

Sounds like you accomplished a lot for one day. Before you know it, you will have many items to sell! Have you looked at WalMart for the webbing? And if there is a Hobby Lobby in H'ville, they would be more apt to have it.
You are a busy lady, no doubt about that. I'd love to see some photos of aprons, bags and such when you can squeeze some photography time into your schedule.
What wonderful ideas, Dooley. You are so creative and industrious. Yes, we would love to see pictures. I have a very old machine that I can't find the right size needle for. I have a few things put back that I want to sew. At one time I really enjoyed sewing. Hope your day is a very blessed one.
