Necessity is.....

Yesterday morning, I was getting all my paintings ready for my browse box. We're having an "Art & Market Walk" downtown in Brooksville, FL. So, of course, I started lamenting about not having a bag to carry my paintings in since my wonderful Macy's plastic bag fell apart during the last two shows. I've seen others with wonderful fabric bags, and I thought that would be nice to have. Well, Good Night! I know how to sew! And, as luck would have it, I had two pretty pieces of designer fabric that was given to me years ago.


Well, the next thing you know, I'm busy designing a bag - but, of course, I didn't have the stuff for the straps -- so, off I go to Ocala (30 miles away) to get some. Then, this morning, when I should have been sewing, I had to go to the grocery store - then lunch - and I was beginning to think this wasn't such a great idea. But, I finally got down to sewing around 1:00 - and by golly, I'd finished 2 bags by 3:00! Now I just have to clean up all the mess!


What do you think?

Ooh, Nancy! Those are gorgeous pieces of eye candy! As much as I am drawn to blues and greens, I have to say that the orange bag is especially stunning!!

What do I say I say you should make more of these and get them out there on the market place. Would you like to teach my wife how to do that .

Nancy said...

That's funny, Ralph - Of course while I was making them, I was trying to figure out how to sell them!

Just love the bags.

Bought fabric eons ago and never got the measurements from Jeanne for her bags.

Now I have you to show me, lucky me>

Well, this isn't working but I'll keep trying. You may have seven messages by the time I finish.

Really lovely bags.
I purchase fabric eons ago. Never got around to it. You know that feeling.

Lots of credit to you for doing in.
